mitigate your aco risk in pathways to success

The Centers from Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) finalized the new Shared Savings Program - Pathways to Success to put ACOs on a faster path to downside risk. Under the old rules, an ACO could have six years without downside risk, now most ACOs will go to risk after only two or three years. There is no reason to worry – Caravan Health is here to help.

Even with a faster path to ACO risk, there are many advantages under Pathways to Success. Many ACOs can benefit from having a regional component of the benchmark in the first agreement period. Providers that treat patients with more complicated conditions can also get more credit for the higher costs. Most importantly, Caravan Health is ready to go into risk with you, dramatically reducing your risk, even with this faster glidepath.
