Collaborative Health ACO was started in January 2013. In its second year, this organization spent $13,169 on average for each of its 8,830 beneficiaries (including beneficiaries only in the ACO for a partial year). By comparison, in its benchmark year, it spent $14,744 per beneficiary, a difference of $1,575. The ACO successfully reported, having earned its participants $6,287,775 of the $13,902,836 saved for Medicare.

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.

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