(Recorded Webinar) Changes to the Medicare Shared Savings Programs: What It Means for FQHCs

Duration: 48 minutes
Recorded on: 11/9/2022

CMS recently proposed changes to the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP) intended to promote greater participation by safety-net providers, including FQHCs, as well as inclusion of beneficiaries dually-eligible for Medicare and Medicaid, and beneficiaries in underserved or rural areas.

CMS also proposed changes that would permit advance payments to certain types of Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) — which include ACOs more likely to be formed by FQHCs — and increase flexibility for organizations new to the program in their transition to performance-based risk.

In this webinar, Adam Falcone and Susannah Vance Gopalan will describe the MSSP program, explain changes finalized by CMS for Calendar Year 2023, and identify potential benefits in forming or participating in ACOs in the MSSP.

Certificates of Attendance: We verify attendance upon completion of a webinar (live or recorded version) and will only issue certificates in the name of the account holder enrolled in the course. If you need to document attendance for someone other than the account holder, we provide blank Certificates of Attendance for a supervisor to sign and certify that a different individual viewed the course. 

Group Attendance: Due to the online nature of webinars, we cannot verify participation by more than one person. For groups, we provide an attendance record form and blank Certificates of Attendance to record attendance at a group viewing session and document each individual's participation. We recommend that a supervisor or colleague sign the certificate to certify attendance.
