Healthcare providers that wish to participate in CMS’ Pioneer ACO Model program must submit a letter of intent to CMS by June 10, 2011. This program is the latest initiative in the development of ACOs. The Pioneer ACO program is an opportunity for groups of providers that are already accustomed to coordinating care and ready to share risk. The Pioneer program will offer greater risks and rewards than ACOs participating under the previously released shared savings program.
