Redesigning Direct Contracting: How to prepare for the new ACO REACH Model

The Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) recently announced a redesign of its Direct Contracting model to align with the Administration’s goals around health equity and to address stakeholder concerns. As part of this, CMMI is rebranding the model as the Accountable Care Organization Realizing Equity, Access, and Community Health (ACO REACH Model) and will accept applications for a 2023 cohort.

Watch this on-demand webinar to learn more about design changes under the ACO REACH Model and how the model compares to other shared savings opportunities, such as Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP). Topics include:

  • What types of key capabilities your organization will need to succeed
  • What your organization should consider when applying for the ACO REACH Model
  • How Premier can help with these strategic decisions
