PLEASE NOTE: The ACO-40 depression remission at 12 months quality measure was not included in the public reporting due to low sample size. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) also waived the requirement for ACOS to field a CAHPS For ACO Survey for PY 2020 through the physician fee schedule final rule for calendar year 2021. Additionally, CMS reverted ACO-8 risk-standardized, all conditions readmission, and AC0-38 risk-standardized acute admission rates for patients with multiple chronic conditions to pay-for-reporting, given the impact of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) public health emergency (PHE) on these measures.
