Top 20 ACOs in Texas
The Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP) allows providers, hospitals, and others involved in patient care to create an accountable care organization (ACO) that can earn back a portion of the total amount of savings they generate by coordinating care for Medicare beneficiaries. An ACO takes on all accountability for the cost, quality, and experience of care for an assigned Medicare fee-for-service (FFS) beneficiary population.
