Quality Performance Results

  • Our ACO did not participate in the Shared Savings Program in the previous performance year; this section is not applicable at this time.

Waivers & Arrangements Disclosed

The UC San Diego Health Accountable Care Network Board has approved the following arrangements for the waivers authorized by CMS and the OIG pursuant to the “Medicare Program; Final Waivers in Connection with the Shared Savings Program” originally published on November 2, 2011 and finalized on October 29, 2015.

Payment Rule Waiver

  • Yes, our ACO does use the SNF 3-Day Rule Waiver.

EHR Subsidy Participation Waiver

  • The Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services has made available waivers of certain Federal Fraud and Abuse laws in connection with the operation of Accountable Care Organizations (ACO) that have entered into a Participation Agreement under the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP) with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (see "Final Waivers in Connection with the Shared Savings Program") (see 80 Fed. Reg. 66,726 (October 29, 2015)) (the "Final Rule")). Pursuant to the Final Rule, UC San Diego Health Accountable Care Network (UCSDH ACO) seeks waiver protection for the arrangement described below ("EHR Subsidy Arrangement"):

    The EHR Subsidy Arrangement became effective January 1, 2018. The parties to each subsidy arrangement include UC San Diego Health and the UCSDH ACO on the one hand, and the eligible UCSDH ACO Participant practice on the other. The EHR Subsidy Arrangement has two components—an upfront, one time implementation services component, and an ongoing licensing, maintenance and support component. Under the EHR Subsidy Arrangement, certain UCSDH ACO Participant practices will be given subsidized access to the UCSD Health EPIC Community Connect Platform.

  • The EHR Subsidy Arrangement is designed to facilitate the widespread adoption of EHR technology by UCSDH ACO Participant providers who provide medical care to patients assigned to the UCSDH ACO in order to enhance and improve the efficiency, effectiveness and quality care provided to such individuals.

    On November 22, 2017, the UCSDH ACO's Board of Directors duly authorized the arrangements described above, and made a bona fide determination that each arrangement is reasonably related to the purposes of the MSSP for the reasons stated above, and has contemporaneously documented such determination.
