Updated Materials for the Accountable Care Organization (ACO) Realizing Equity, Access and Community Health (REACH) Model
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is publishing a calendar to the ACO REACH Model website to provide the timing of key activities associated with the ACO REACH Model. CMS is providing this information in response to questions from stakeholders about key deadlines related to PY2023 participation. In response to stakeholder requests, CMS is planning to align key dates with the Medicare Shared Savings Program, including:
- August 4, 2022: the deadline to add providers to a REACH ACO and deadline to add ACO participant TINs to a Shared Savings Program ACO; and
- September 9, 2022: the deadline to drop providers from a REACH ACO and deadline to drop ACO participant TINs from a Shared Savings Program ACO.
Please note that these dates are subject to change. Refer to the Medicare Shared Savings Program’s website for information related to that program.
ACO REACH also has Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) available.
Visit the ACO REACH Model website for the full list of important dates and FAQs.
