Overview

Southern Kentucky Health Care Alliance was started in July 2012. In its second year, this organization spent $9,329 on average for each of its 5,059 beneficiaries (including beneficiaries only in the ACO for a partial year). By comparison, in its benchmark year, it spent $10,648 per beneficiary, a difference of $1,318. The ACO successfully reported, having earned its participants $2,554,879 of the $6,670,157 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.
