Rio Grande Valley Health Alliance, LLC was started in January 2013. In its second year, this organization spent $11,241 on average for each of its 4,719 beneficiaries (including beneficiaries only in the ACO for a partial year). By comparison, in its benchmark year, it spent $13,078 per beneficiary, a difference of $1,838. The ACO successfully reported, having earned its participants $3,403,175 of the $8,671,891 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.
