McDermott Will & Emery is pleased to provide this supplemental matrix to its original White Paper summarizing and evaluating the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) proposed Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP) regulations. As did the original White Paper, the matrix provides both a summary of, and commentary on, CMS’s recently published final regulations. The matrix, which is intended to be read together with the original White Paper, “The Controversial Draft Medicare ACO Regulations: Analysis, Comments and Recommended Action,” includes page-by-page cross-references identifying changes between the Proposed Rule and the Final Rule, as well as McDermott commentary and recommended action items. Readers should consult both the White Paper and the updated matrix when navigating through the Final Rule’s requirements. We hope that you find this update and the original White Paper to be a useful and valuable resource and strategic planning tool as you evaluate your organization’s participation in the MSSP. The authors and editors of these documents, as well as other McDermott lawyers with substantial experience and knowledge in the many issues raised by the MSSP, are available to respond to your questions and to facilitate your consideration and pursuit of shared savings programs.
