John Muir Health Medicare ACO was started in July 2012. In its second year, this organization spent $10,577 on average for each of its 22,479 beneficiaries (including beneficiaries only in the ACO for a partial year). By comparison, in its benchmark year, it spent $10,938 per beneficiary, a difference of $361. The ACO successfully reported, having earned its participants $3,496,096 of the $8,112,768 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.
