Pioneer ACO draft leaked

The 43-page draft offers a detailed specification of the methods that Medicare proposes to identify or calculate: 

• The ACO‐aligned population;

• The reference population;

• Baseline expenditures;

• The expenditure benchmark; and

• Performance period expenditures.

The draft doesn't address the development of the quality performance score or its use in the calculation of shared savings (or loss) amounts.
