On August 8, 2018, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released a sweeping proposed regulation that, if enacted, will significantly change the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP). The proposed regulation, titled “Pathways to Success,” accelerates the path for accountable care organizations (ACOs) to participate in shared risk arrangements while simultaneously softening key provisions, allowing lower revenue ACOs to participate with reduced total financial risk. In addition, CMS has proposed numerous methodological and operational changes.

While there are always uncertainties regarding the outcome of any proposed regulation, a deeper understanding of the Pathways to Success program and its implications is essential for stakeholders to best position themselves going forward. This session  provides a summary and analysis of the proposed regulation’s key provisions and discusses how they might impact the MSSP. Time is allotted for attendee questions and answers during the session.

Please join us on Friday, September 21, 2018, at 1 PM Eastern as Milliman's Colleen Norris presents Milliman's analysis of the proposed Pathways to Success program in the HealthcareWebSummit event: Understanding MSSP Pathways to Success: Milliman Analysis and Implications.
