Overview

Hackensack Alliance ACO was started in April 2012. In its second year, this organization spent $12,311 on average for each of its 15,603 beneficiaries (including beneficiaries only in the ACO for a partial year). By comparison, in its benchmark year, it spent $12,725 per beneficiary, a difference of $414. The ACO successfully reported, having earned its participants $2,832,988 of the $6,464,895 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.
