MGMA expresses support for ACO legislation

06/24/2021 9:43 AM | Rebekah Francis (Administrator)

MGMA joined 12 leading healthcare organizations in supporting the Accountable Care in Rural America Act, a recently reintroduced bill that addresses the way financial targets are set for Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) in the Medicare Shared Savings Program. This piece of legislation would improve the accuracy and fairness in evaluating ACOs by fixing the "rural glitch," a flaw in the benchmarking methodology that disproportionately affects rural ACOs. We hope Congress acts to correct this flaw and levels the playing field for all ACOs to achieve savings when they improve quality and reduce costs.
