The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services' Innovation Center will host a conference call on June 7 to discuss the Accountable Care Organization request for applications and another call on June 14 to discuss the Medicare Shared Savings Program Advance Payment Initiative.

CMS announced the ACO RFP on May 17. Organizations must submit a letter of intent by June 10 to the CMS Innovation Center, and applications are due within 60 days of the notice publication (see story). More information on the Noon EST call on June 7 is available here.

CMS is considering an Advanced Payment Initiative to test whether and how pre-paying a portion of future savings could increase participation in the Shared Savings Program. More information on the 2 p.m. EST call on June 14 is available here.
