Overview

Greater Baltimore Health Alliance was started in July 2012. In its second year, this organization spent $11,312 on average for each of its 11,810 beneficiaries (including beneficiaries only in the ACO for a partial year). By comparison, in its benchmark year, it spent $11,635 per beneficiary, a difference of $323. The ACO successfully reported, but failed to earn its participants any savings. This ACO saved Medicare $3,812,495 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.
