The Shared Savings Program is a voluntary program that encourages groups of doctors, hospitals, and other health care providers to come together as an ACO to give coordinated, high quality care to their Medicare beneficiaries.

As a proud participant of the Shared Savings Program, CCACO has earned shared savings for four consecutive years and saved over 34 millions for CMS in total. In 2018, CCACO is ranked 2nd among all 39 New York State accountable care organizations (ACOs) and 6th out of all 548 ACOs nationwide for percentage of expenditures saved.

We understand the struggles. Although the concepts of value-based care and quality reporting are meant to go hand in hand, many healthcare providers struggle to realize success with both endeavors. CCACO is here to help!

Our members are required to report for Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and Group Practice Reporting Option (GPRO). Our team will go to your office in person to provide any assistance you would need with these programs. Learn about what they are and how we help below.

MIPS was designed to tie payments to quality and cost efficient care, drive improvement in care processes and health outcomes, increase the use of healthcare information, and reduce the cost of care.

The MIPS Performance Year begins on January 1 and ends on December 31 each year. Program participants must report data collected during one calendar year by March 31 of the following calendar year.

The CMS Web Interface is a user-friendly, secure, internet-based data submission mechanism for Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) and groups and virtual groups of 25 or more clinicians to report quality data to the Quality Payment Program.

How it works

CMS generates a sample of beneficiaries for each of the quality measures that are pre-populated in the CMS Web Interface. To assess which beneficiaries to include in each sample, CMS reviews the Medicare claims submitted by your organization during the performance period and creates a sample of beneficiaries for each measure based on the measure criteria. Your group is then asked to report on that sample of beneficiaries

CCACO provides an easy-to-understand platform as well as in-person assistance to each practice to report quality data. For details, log in to your member account.

The patient-centered medical home is a model of care that puts patients at the forefront of care. PCMHs build better relationships between patients and their clinical care teams. NCQA's Patient-Centered Medical Home Recognition Program is the most widely adopted Patient-Centered Medical Home evaluation program in the country. More than 12,000 practices (with more than 60,000 clinicians) are recognized by NCQA. And more than 100 payers support NCQA recognition through financial incentives or coaching.
