Overview

Meridian Accountable Care Organization, LLC was started in January 2013. In its first year, this organization spent $416,506,358 total on its 40,133 individual beneficiaries (including beneficiaries only in the ACO for a partial year). By comparison, in its benchmark year, it spent $431,396,677 per beneficiary, a difference of $14,890,319. The ACO successfully reported, having earned its participants $7,445,159.

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. If the ACO spends less than 2.3% per-beneficiary compared to the benchmark years, the participants will be paid 50% of the savings.

ACOs can request early payments to help finance the startup costs of the ACO. This ACO did not accept any advanced payments.

The 40,133 individual beneficiaries spent a total 38,887 person-years in the ACO. Partial years are frequently due to things such as new medicare members entering the ACO and death.
