Accountable Care Organization (ACO)
An Accountable Care Organization (ACO) is a group of doctors, hospitals and other health care providers who come together voluntarily to give coordinated, high quality care to their Medicare patients. The goal of coordinated care ensures that patients, especially those with chronic conditions, received the right care, in the right place, at the right time.
Marshall Health, Huntington Internal Medicine Group (HIMG) and Cabell Huntington Hospital (CHH) joined together as participants in MHC Accountable Care Organization, LLC (MHC ACO) and began participation in the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP) effective January 1, 2018. St. Mary’s Medical Center, Inc. (SMMC) and St. Mary’s Medical Management, LLC (SMMM) have joined MHC ACO and began participation in the MSSP effective January 1, 2019.
For you, this coordination could mean less paperwork to fill out at the doctor’s office, avoiding unnecessary tests, and more awareness of treatment options for various health conditions. When an ACO delivers both high-quality care and spends health care dollars more wisely, it creates a shared savings for the health system, health plans and patients.
