The state’s Executive Office of Health and Human Services has released a Request for Information regarding the formation of Accountable Care Organizations (ACO’s) and are seeking comments from “all interested parties.”
The RFI includes an introductory letter from Health and Human Services Secretary Dr. JudyAnn Bigby and a thorough explanation of the state’s intentions for the transition to a new payment system. A response template is included in “Attachment A” of the document and comments should be submitted electronically through the Commonwealth Procurement Access and Solicitation System (Comm-PASS). Instructions are available in the RFI and the Home Care Alliance encourages home care agencies to submit comments as they see fit.
