About 30 integrated health systems are expected to participate in the Pioneer ACO Model project this summer, making a full transition to ACO by September or October, according to Jonathan Blum, director of the Center for Medicare Management, a part of the CMS.
The CMS proposed an exception under the physician payment rules for 2009, but opposition--mainly from medical device manufacturers--killed it, said Lisa Ohrin, acting director of the division of technical payment policy at the CMS's Center for Medicare Management.
To achieve these goals, CMS has announced that it will: * launch a $35 million national media campaign to better inform seniors and other Medicare beneficiaries of their health care options; * enhance 1-800-MEDICARE to a 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week service that will provide more detailed information to help beneficiaries make Medicare decisions; * create a "culture of responsiveness" at CMS in serving beneficiaries, health care providers, states, and lawmakers; * reform the contractor process to improve the quality and efficiency of the Medicare claims-processing services; * restructure the agency around, three new business entities: the Center for Medicare Management, the Center for Beneficiary Choices, and the Center for Medicaid and State Operations.
In addition to the name change, HCFA also announced three new, separate centers of service: * The Center for Beneficiary Choices will key in on the Medicare+Choice program and provide information to beneficiaries; * The Center for Medicare Management will deal with the traditional fee-for-service program; * The Center for Medicaid and State Operations will center around programs administered by the states, including Medicaid, State Children's Health Insurance Plan (SCHIP), and insurance regulations.
