Golden Life Accountable Care Organization (ACO) was started in July 2012. In its second year, this organization spent $11,764 on average for each of its 7,571 beneficiaries (including beneficiaries only in the ACO for a partial year). By comparison, in its benchmark year, it spent $11,414 per beneficiary, a difference of -$350. The ACO successfully reported, but failed to earn its participants any savings. This ACO lost Medicare $2,653,262 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 accepted an advanced payment to help pay for its startup costs.
