ACO Savings Bonus Plus Penalty Payment Model

As with the shared savings model, physicians and providers not only receive shared savings for managing costs and hitting quality and satisfaction benchmarks but also are liable for expenses that exceed spending targets. This model is called “symmetric” or “two-sided,” and the bonus potential is increased to balance the accountability for exceeding preset goals. Fee-for-service payment is retained. This resembles the “two-sided” model mentioned in the MSSP final rule.
