Mercy ACO, LLC (IA) was started in July 2012. In its second year, this organization spent $8,323 on average for each of its 51,284 beneficiaries (including beneficiaries only in the ACO for a partial year). By comparison, in its benchmark year, it spent $8,470 per beneficiary, a difference of $147. The ACO successfully reported, but failed to earn its participants any savings. This ACO saved Medicare $7,560,515 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.
