HCTTF Statement on 2019 MSSP Performance

Statement from the HCTTF Executive Director Jeff Micklos on 2019 MSSP Performance

“We applaud the recent announcement that the Medicare Shared Savings Program ACOs generated $1.19 billion in total net savings to Medicare.  These results demonstrate that providers in alternative payment models are continuing to deliver high-quality, person-centered care while reducing Medicare spending. We commend the Health Care Transformation Task Force provider members, many of whom were early adopters of accountable care models, who continue the hard work of transforming delivery systems to better coordinate care for patients. The first six months of the Pathways to Success program have produced promising results, and we urge CMS to conduct additional program evaluations in addition to reporting on benchmark performance so the industry can learn from and scale best practices derived from model participation.”
