Shared Savings Program Fast Facts

The Shared Savings Program Fast Facts are an annual collection of data that illustrate facts about the Shared Savings Program ACOs such as, where ACOs are located, ACO composition, payment characteristics, beneficiary population demographics, and the risk profile of the ACO beneficiary population. This compilation of information provides an aggregate look at the composition of all ACOs, not specific ACOs. 

What is an Accountable Care Organization (ACO)?

The Shared Savings Program ACOs are groups of doctors and other health care providers who voluntarily work together with Medicare to give high quality service to Medicare Fee-for-Service beneficiaries. An ACO is not a Medicare Advantage plan or an HMO.
