Physician Health Partners, LLC was started in January 2014. In its first year, this organization spent $7,761 on average for each of its 31,320 beneficiaries (including beneficiaries only in the ACO for a partial year). By comparison, in its benchmark year, it spent $7,581 per beneficiary, a difference of -$181. The ACO successfully reported, but failed to earn its participants any savings. This ACO lost Medicare $5,657,253 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.
