AMA Considers Advocating That CCRCs be Part of ACOs

June 19, 2017

The American Medical Association will lobby the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to allow continuing care retirement communities to initiate investment models of accountable care organizations if its board of trustees approves a resolution that the AMA's House of Delegates referred for a decision last week at the delegates' meeting in Chicago.

House of Delegates members' reaction to the resolution, which AMDA–The Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine said was proposed by AMDA members, were “mixed,” according to an account of the body's meeting posted on the AMA website.
