One of the most overlooked provisions of the final rules of The Medicare Shared Savings Program is the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Repayment Mechanism requirement. For healthcare providers currently approved as an Accountable Care Organization (ACO) entity or working toward ACO approval, dealing with the downside risk is key to protecting your organization’s balance sheet.
Integro and its affiliated company, ReSource, have developed solutions to offer Accountable Care Organizations cost-effective solutions to fulfill the CMS Repayment Mechanism requirement.
On January 25, 2013, The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) published an Omnibus Final Rule. It enhances patient privacy protections, changes the definition of a business associate, redefines a breach, and strengthens the government’s ability to enforce the law. Integro’s brief summary includes recommendations to assist in the development of a work plan that focuses on the insurance, risk management and liability implications of the revised rule.
