The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services will create a new database, known as a system of records, to support the Medicare Shared Savings Program and Pioneer ACO Model, collectively known as the ACO Program.

The system of records will include identifiable information on participating Medicare beneficiaries, providers and suppliers participating in an ACO who are sole proprietorships, leaders of an ACO who provide identifiable information used to determine the ACO's eligibility, and contact people for an ACO.

Collected data will include beneficiary name, gender, health insurance claim number (possibly Social Security number), address, date of birth and description of provided services. Information from other participants will include names, addresses, tax identification number or SSN, and national provider identifier.

More information is in a notice available now and being published Sept. 19 in the Federal Register.
