Policy & Advocacy
Advocacy is a core component of the NAACOS mission, and our policy positions are aimed at helping Medicare ACOs achieve the long-term sustainability necessary to enhance care coordination for Medicare beneficiaries, reduce healthcare costs, and improve quality in the Medicare program. To ensure the stability and success of the ACO model, we regularly advocate to members of Congress and policymakers in the Executive branch to modify and create new ACO policies.
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions about NAACOS advocacy initiatives or policies governing ACOs.
