What is an Accountable Care Organization?

An Accountable Care Organization (ACO) is a group of doctors and other health care providers who voluntarily work together with Medicare to give you high quality of service and care at the right time in the right setting. Doctors participating in Medicare Shared Savings Program ACOs work closely with other doctors and providers in the ACO to coordinate care for Medicare beneficiaries, like yourself, who have traditional Medicare.
