Topics covered will include changes to the program’s risk tracks, participation options for ACOs based upon fee-for-service revenue and prior experience in the program, changes to the benchmark methodology and risk adjustment, and expanding opportunities for ACOs to use of telehealth and the 3-Day SNF Rule waiver.
