What that means

A REACH ACO is a group of doctors, hospitals and other health care providers who agree to work together to provide you with high-quality care in a way that lowers overall health care costs. For all our members who are Medicare patients, this will not impact your benefits. In fact, it will only add to the care you receive.

Why that’s good for you

Being part of an ACO means you will receive:

  • Greater care within the extensive CareMount Value Partners IPA network
  • More opportunity for specialty care
  • Coordination with services if you go out-of-network
  • Cost savings with value-based care
Value Based Care:
A comprehensive approach to care

Value-based care is a holistic and long-term approach to your wellbeing. This means rather than just treating the illness, we look at your care in a more preventive way. That means more attention to chronic conditions and overall wellness, which leads to healthier outcomes for you, and fewer bills for emergency or acute intervention.
