Accountable Care Coalition of The Tri-Counties, LLC was
started in July 2012.
In its first year, this organization spent
total on its 18,155
individual beneficiaries (including beneficiaries only in the ACO for a partial year).
By comparison, in its benchmark year, it spent $220,564,017 per beneficiary, a difference of -$2,570,219. The ACO successfully reported, but failed to earn its participants any savings.
This is a Track 1 Shared Savings ACO which means it has accepted
only upside with no downside risk in exchange for a smaller maximum shared savings rate.
If the ACO spends less than 2.57%
per-beneficiary compared to the benchmark years, the participants will
be paid 50% of the savings.
ACOs can request early payments to help finance the startup costs of the ACO. This ACO did not accept any advanced payments.
The 18,155 individual
beneficiaries spent a total 16,090
person-years in the ACO. Partial years are frequently due to things such as new medicare
members entering the ACO and death.
