The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released in the Oct. 20 Federal Register the final rules on accountable care organizations (ACOs), as part of the Affordable Care Act. The ISMA has a task force on this issue, headed by Past President Vidya Kora, M.D., and ISMA staff is already engaged in examining the final rules. Keep reading ISMA Reports for their reaction and comments.

However, preliminary responses indicate changes from the original draft are positive and mirror recommendations made by the ISMA and AMA. Penalties were decreased and bonuses increased. Mandatory quality measures were also reduced.
