Quality Independent Physicians, LLC was started in July 2012. In its second year, this organization spent $9,920 on average for each of its 12,618 beneficiaries (including beneficiaries only in the ACO for a partial year). By comparison, in its benchmark year, it spent $10,998 per beneficiary, a difference of $1,079. The ACO successfully reported, having earned its participants $6,062,187 of the $13,611,421 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 accepted an advanced payment to help pay for its startup costs.
