Good Help ACO was started in January 2013. In its second year, this organization spent $9,000 on average for each of its 68,429 beneficiaries (including beneficiaries only in the ACO for a partial year). By comparison, in its benchmark year, it spent $8,814 per beneficiary, a difference of -$186. The ACO successfully reported, but failed to earn its participants any savings. This ACO lost Medicare $12,726,370 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.
