Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP) Accountable Care Organization (ACO) with Aledade
Aledade has shown significant success in Louisiana helping physicians, in both rural and urban practices, achieve savings checks. In addition, Aledade is committed to helping small primary care practices stay independent. Their understanding of the unique challenges of practicing family medicine is unparalleled. Aledade’s four founding Louisiana practices have achieved more than $1.6M in cash payouts for the ACO in the first one and a half performance years. To date, almost 100 Louisiana physicians from 28 practices have followed their lead and moved into Aledade’s ACO partnerships. There are many benefits of participating in an ACO, including automatic MIPS credits. Aledade’s partner practices see an increase of 66% in patient-centered “good” FFS revenue from Medicare Annual Wellness Visits (AWVs), Chronic Care Management (CCM), and Transitional Care Management (TCM). This revenue is realized in the first year of participation. Medicare, Medicare Advantage, Medicaid and Commercial payors have all announced goals to shift primary care reimbursement care to incentive-based contracts by 2020, making this the perfect time to act.
