On April 18, 2011, the IRS released Notice 2011-20, summarizing how it expects existing IRS guidance to apply to § 501(c)(3) organizations, such as charitable hospitals, participating in the Shared Savings Program through ACOs.  The IRS released Fact Sheet 2011-11 confirming that Notice 2011-20 continues to reflect IRS expectations regarding the Shared Savings Program and ACOs, and providing additional information for charitable organizations that may wish to participate in the Shared Savings Program.
