Frequently asked questions about ACOs
ACOs are a way to make sure that you and other patients get coordinated, high-quality care.
Accountable care organizations (ACOs) are groups of local health care providers that work together. They help make sure you get the right care, when and where you need it.
There are different kinds of ACOs. The one your doctor is part of is called a Medicare Shared Savings program. It works to improve health for individuals and different populations. It also tries to keep expenses low.
Our Indiana ACO is called "AHN Accountable Care Organization, LLC." Our Ohio ACO is called "American Health Network of Ohio Care Organization, LLC."OR
No. If you have traditional Medicare, you can see any doctor or go to any hospital that accepts Medicare.
You have the same rights that all people with Medicare have. Medicare shares some types of medical information with your doctor’s ACO.
This helps the ACO stay on top of your medical needs. It also helps the ACO track how well it's doing to keep you healthy.
The privacy of your medical information is protected by federal law. You can choose to not give your name and other personal information to Medicare.
