Franciscan ACO, Inc., provides coordinated, comprehensive care across hospitals, physician practices and other healthcare providers, with an aim to bring down the overall costs of medical care. In December 2011, Franciscan Alliance ACO (now Franciscan ACO, Inc.) became the first and only ACO in Indiana and among the first in the country to partner with Medicare as a Pioneer ACO.
After finishing the third and final year of the Pioneer ACO agreement, Franciscan ACO, Inc., began its transition to the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP) as an ACO working with Medicare. As a Medicare ACO, we are proud to continue to build care programs that provide quality care to our Medicare Fee-for-Service patients.
In the Shared Savings Program, attributed Medicare Fee-for Service beneficiaries receive the added benefit of a more coordinated care experience. This includes coordination of preventive health services and care management support for persons with chronic health conditions, such as diabetes and congestive heart failure. All services provided through the ACO are free of charge. Better yet, beneficiaries maintain the ability to see any doctor or healthcare provider of their choice, as well as the full benefits associated with traditional Medicare. There are no benefit changes or additional costs for beneficiaries whose providers participate in the ACO.
