Medicare ACOs Shown to Improve Patient Care


Medicare Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) have improved patient care while saving hundreds of millions of dollars, according to a report by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). ACOs in the Pioneer ACO Model and Medicare Shared Savings program generated over $372 million in total program savings for Medicare ACOs. The encouraging news comes from the second year of performance of 23 Pioneer ACOs and 220 Shared Savings Program ACOs. They also improved significantly on almost all measures of quality and patient experience this year. The report also notes that health care prices are rising at their lowest rates in nearly 50 years, Medicare spending, per beneficiary, is falling, and employer premiums for family coverage grew just 3% in 2014. That increase is tied with 2010 for the lowest on record back to 1999. For more information, visit
