80 Accountable Care Organizations to KnowWritten by Molly Gamble | April 24, 2012
Accountable care organizations proliferated in the past three years. The increase has been spurred by private payors' interest in coordinated care management and the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, which introduced the Medicare Shared Savings Program.
There has been a significant amount of ACO development within the past year specifically, as CMS revealed the first 32 Pioneer ACOs and, more recently, the first 27 Medicare ACOs. Commercial health insurers are also revealing extensive plans for ACO development. Major payors like Cigna, UnitedHealth Group, Blue Cross Blue Shield and Aetna continue to pursue performance-based contracts with providers across the country.
This list includes 80 commercial and Medicare ACOs. They are presented alphabetically, either by the ACO's formal name or the name of the ACO's main provider. Read the full-length list at Becker's Hospital Review by clicking here.
