According to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), 561 accountable care organizations (ACOs) participated in the Medicare Shared Savings program in 2018, covering some 10.5 million beneficiaries. Shared Savings ACOs receive a portion of potential financial savings if they meet quality and cost benchmarks, but also must eventually share in potential losses.

CMS says that 58 ACOs participated in 2018 in the Next Generation ACO program, which gives participants the opportunity to share in an even higher percent of potential losses, in exchange for a greater portion of potential financial savings.
