Scottsdale Health Partners was started in January 2014. In its first year, this organization spent $7,981 on average for each of its 15,350 beneficiaries (including beneficiaries only in the ACO for a partial year). By comparison, in its benchmark year, it spent $8,224 per beneficiary, a difference of $244. The ACO successfully reported, having earned its participants $1,833,121 of the $3,741,063 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 did not accept any advanced payments.
