UT Southwestern Accountable Care Network was started in January 2014. In its first year, this organization spent $11,239 on average for each of its 18,964 beneficiaries (including beneficiaries only in the ACO for a partial year). By comparison, in its benchmark year, it spent $11,556 per beneficiary, a difference of $317. The ACO successfully reported, having earned its participants $2,945,035 of the $6,010,275 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.
