FEDS RELEASE LONG-AWAITED ACO REGULATIONS
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sibelius finally issued proposed rules to regulate the Medicare accountable care organizations created by the new health reform law. We are reviewing the 429-page document and have many concerns. TMA will complete our analysis shortly and will release that along with reports from other medical organizations to provide guidance to physicians who are contemplating joining or creating an ACO. The devil, as they say, is in the details, and these new rules are 429 pages of potentially diabolical details.
