Policy Committee 

The NAACOS policy committee helps guide the NAACOS advocacy agenda to improve the long-term stability and success of the accountable care model. Policy committee members provide vital feedback to NAACOS staff on a variety of issues related to the accountable care model, including rules for the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP), the role ACOs play in Medicare payment reform, and how to enhance the role of population health management in the healthcare industry. Policy Committee members regularly give specific feedback on proposal regulation or legislation under consideration by the executive branch or Congress.
