About our ACO:
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has announced its commitment to achieve better care for individuals, better health for populations, and reduced expenditures. For those reasons, CMS is partnering with health care providers who agree to accept joint responsibility for the cost and quality of care outcomes for Medicare beneficiaries through Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs).
An ACO is a group of doctors, hospitals, and other healthcare providers who come together voluntarily to coordinate high-quality care for Medicare patients, like you, to better meet their individual needs and preferences. Coordinated care helps patients get the right care at the right time, while avoiding unnecessary duplication of services.
For beneficiaries enrolled in the original Medicare program, relationships with ACO providers will NOT limit available benefits, and beneficiaries will still have the right to use any doctor or hospital that accepts Medicare, at any time. Participants in the Crozer ACO have additional benefits available to them at no additional cost, including:
- Three-day Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) Rule Waiver: Under current Medicare law, Medicare only covers care in a SNF if a patient has a prior three-day inpatient hospital stay. This new feature may allow you to get Medicare-covered SNF services at a participating SNF without a mandatory three-day inpatient hospital stay. For a list of participating SNFs, please click SNF three-day waiver providers below.
