The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has announced updates to the Medicare Shared Savings Program (Shared Savings Program) and Medicare Direct Contracting models due to the Covid-19 public health emergency (PHE), both of which require immediate action. These updates include an imminent deadline, as early as next month, for Shared Savings ACOs to submit voluntary elections to extend their agreements, as well as a new Letter of Intent opportunity and application period for Medicare Direct Contracting.

The webinar will discuss these opportunities, related action plans, and critical success factors for providers seeking to participate in these and other value-based payment (VBP) programs. We will also explore how these opportunities can fit into an organization’s overall VBP and risk insurance/reinsurance strategies to support downside risk mitigation, both for the remainder of 2020, as well as planning for 2021 and beyond.

Speakers include:
• Andrew Snyder, MD, COPE Health Solutions, Principal & Chief Medical Officer
• Brent Hardaway, COPE Health Solutions, Principal
• Christina Mendez, Aon Reinsurance Solutions, Senior Managing Director,
National Managed Care Leader
