The centerpiece of the Health Affairs Journal Club meeting in May is, “Benchmarking Changes And Selective Participation In The Medicare Shared Savings Program.”

The authors of the study found that since the 2017 introduction of regional spending into the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP) benchmarks, participation incentives were radically altered, favoring the participation of Accountable Care Organizations and practices with lower baseline spending in their region compared to others. These changes suggest additional costs for the program, and the need for reforms.

On May 10, please join author Peter Lyu of RTI International, for a detailed discussion of the paper’s data, methods, and policy conclusions. Health Affairs Senior Editor Laura Tollen will host.
