The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Aug. 27 released an evaluation report for the first performance year of the agency’s Next Generation Accountable Care Organization Model. For the 2016 performance year, the Next Generation ACO Model generated net savings to Medicare of about $62 million while maintaining quality of care for beneficiaries, the agency said. CMS said savings appeared to be largely associated with reductions in hospital and skilled nursing facility-associated costs. There were 18 Next Generation ACOs in 2016. See the report for more findings.
