CCACO Earns $4.3 Million in Shared Savings
Medicare ACOs are groups of doctors, hospitals, and other health care providers, who come together voluntarily to provide coordinated high quality care to their Medicare patients. The goal of coordinated care is to ensure that patients, especially the chronically ill, get the right care at the right time, while avoiding unnecessary duplication of services and preventing medical errors. When an ACO exceeds quality and financial thresholds – demonstrating achievement of high-quality care and wiser spending of health care dollars – it is able to share in the savings generated for Medicare.
CCACO is one of the ACOs that shared savings. Nationwide, CCACO ranked in the top 5% of all 392 ACOs nationwide for percentage of expenditures saved over benchmark, saving 11.02% ($10.3 million) over its benchmark and earning a shared savings payment of $4.3 million. Out of the 35 ACOs with beneficiaries in New York State, only eight earned shared savings. CCACO ranked second among all New York State ACOs.
We are deeply proud to be sharing this news with you and thank you for the hard work and dedication you have put in to make this achievement possible.
