Abstract

Date Presented 04/04/19

The exploration of literature on ACOs, an alternative payment model run by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), indicates important opportunities for impact for OT practitioners. It is vital that OT practitioners promote value over volume and advocate for inclusion in new payment models, or they risk reduced funding and support from CMS and other payers. ACOs present a unique opportunity to grow the profession.
