Accountable Care Coalition of DeKalb, LLC. was started in January 2013. In its second year, this organization spent $8,476 on average for each of its 16,426 beneficiaries (including beneficiaries only in the ACO for a partial year). By comparison, in its benchmark year, it spent $8,584 per beneficiary, a difference of $107. The ACO successfully reported, but failed to earn its participants any savings. This ACO saved Medicare $1,764,368 compared to its benchmark year.

This is a Track 2 Shared Savings ACO which means it has accepted both upside and downside risk in exchange for a larger maximum earned savings rate.

ACOs can request early payments to help finance the startup costs of the ACO. This ACO did not accept any advanced payments.
