Franciscan Northwest Physicians Health Network, LLC was started in January 2013. In its second year, this organization spent $7,779 on average for each of its 32,410 beneficiaries (including beneficiaries only in the ACO for a partial year). By comparison, in its benchmark year, it spent $7,820 per beneficiary, a difference of $41. The ACO successfully reported, but failed to earn its participants any savings. This ACO saved Medicare $1,337,639 compared to its benchmark year.

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.
