What is an ACO?

Innovation Care Partners manages two Medicare Shared Savings ACO programs.

Innovation Care Partners manages two Medicare Shared Savings ACO programs. The SHP Accountable Care Organization (ACO) and the John C. Lincoln ACO are each comprised of a subset of physicians who have agreed to meet an extra set of government requirements to provide coordinated high quality care to their Medicare patients. When our ACOs succeed both in delivering high-quality care and spending health care dollars more wisely, we will share in the savings we helped to achieve for the Medicare program.

The SHP ACO was formed January 1, 2014 as a Track 1 MSSP. SHP will remain a Track 1 MSSP through 2017 and will switch to Track 2 January 1, 2018. The SHP ACO contract covers more than 18,000 patients.

The JCL ACO was formed January 1, 2013 as a Track 1 MSSP and renewed for a second term as a Track 1 MSSP through December 31, 2018. The JCL ACO contract covers more than 16,000 patients.
