HCTTF Statement on Proposed Changes to the Medicare Shared Savings Program

Statement by Jeff Micklos, Executive Director, Health Care Transformation Task Force

“The Health Care Transformation Task Force welcomes the release of Medicare’s Pathways to Success for Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs). This is an important step to promote value-based transformation and to push industry momentum forward. At first pass, the proposed rule presents novel ideas and careful thinking on how ACOs may better lower cost and improve patient outcomes. Our members look forward to sharing their feedback and collaborating with CMS on advancing this leading value-based payment program.”


Health Care Transformation Task Force is a unique collaboration of patients, payers, providers and purchasers working to lead a sweeping transformation of the health care system. By transitioning to value-based models that support the Triple Aim of better health, better care and lower costs, the Task Force is committed to accelerating the transformation to value in health care.
