ACO PARTICIPATION WAIVER

Medicare Shared Savings Program Waivers of the Fraud and Abuse Laws
Required Public Disclosures

As of January 1, 2017, Piedmont Clinic ACO LLC (“ACO”) entered into a three-year Participation Agreement in the Medicare Shared Savings Program (“MSSP”) with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (“CMS”).

DISCLOSED ARRANGEMENTS PROTECTED UNDER ACO PARTICIPATION WAIVER
ACO’s governing body has duly authorized the below arrangements that qualify for the ACO Fraud and Abuse Waivers, and specifically the ACO Participation Waiver, through Resolutions adopted by unanimous consent. The ACO Board of Directors has made a bona fide determination that the following arrangement(s) is reasonably related to the purposes of the MSSP because it promotes accountability for the quality, cost, and overall care for a Medicare population as described in the MSSP, provides for
the management and coordination of care for Medicare fee-for-service beneficiaries through ACO, and/or encourages investment in infrastructure and redesigned care processes for high quality and efficient service delivery for patients, including Medicare beneficiaries. Thus the ACO, pursuant to its governing body’s authorization, is asserting the ACO Participation Waiver’s protection over all of the ACO arrangements entered into as of the beginning of the current MSSP Participation Agreement term (January 1, 2017).

To comply with the ACO Participation Waiver’s requirements, the ACO is publicly disclosing the below arrangement(s). ACO will publicly disclose additional arrangements that qualify for the ACO Participation Waiver as they are authorized by its governing board on this website, in compliance with CMS’s public disclosure requirements.

ProviderMatch Arrangements:
Under the ProviderMatch Arrangements, ACO will furnish to all Piedmont Clinic providers a care coordination technology platform known as Kyruus ProviderMatch for Network Care Coordination (“ProviderMatch”), which consists of a suite of search, scheduling and referral products designed to help health networks optimize enterprise-wide patient access and care management.
