WellStar Health Network, LLC was started in July 2012. In its second year, this organization spent $8,887 on average for each of its 38,331 beneficiaries (including beneficiaries only in the ACO for a partial year). By comparison, in its benchmark year, it spent $9,119 per beneficiary, a difference of $233. The ACO successfully reported, having earned its participants $3,783,610 of the $8,924,924 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.
