aledade logoMedicare 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.

Atlantic WFMU
Atlantic Health Partners

LAFP has formed a partnership with vaccine purchasing program Atlantic Health Partners to save family physicians money when purchasing vaccines and advocate on behalf of family medicine practices among manufacturers and payers. There is no cost for LAFP members to enroll in the program and enrollment is voluntary.

By working with leading vaccine manufacturers Merck, Sanofi Pasteur, Pfizer, Dynavax and Seqirus, Atlantic Health Partners offers the most favorable pricing, payment, and purchasing terms for a large array of pediatric, adolescent, adult and influenza vaccines. In addition to lowering vaccine costs, practices can better manage their inventory and cash flow as they are not required to make large, multiple product orders.

Atlantic Health Partners program now offers one-stop shopping for Sanofi, Merck and Dynavax vaccines. Atlantic has helped many LAFP members strengthen their immunization performance by taking an active role in providing reimbursement guidance, advocacy, and timely updates. We strongly encourage you to contact Atlantic to determine how they can best support your immunization efforts.
