American Telemedicine Association supports CMS' new ACO model

CMS has launched its Next Generation ACO Model, which includes 21 ACOs. The American Telemedicine Association has expressed its support for this new model.

"Today is an important day for Medicare beneficiaries getting access to value-based telehealth care," said Gary Capistrant, chief policy officer at ATA. "We think all Medicare ACOs should be able to use telehealth to provide the Medicare range of coverage, and we hope that Congress and CMS will explore allowing more use of innovation to serve better Medicare beneficiaries."
