Another Successful Year for POM ACO
A team of Michigan physician organizations improved care for more than 77,500 Medicare participants across the state, while making a positive difference in the cost of that care, according to new data just released by the federal government.
In fact, the Medicare system saved $43.1 million on the care of those Michiganders in 2018. At the same time, that care met high quality standards.
POM ACO was the thirteenth largest of the nation’s 548 shared-savings ACOs in 2018, as measured by the number of traditional Medicare beneficiaries assigned to its providers. For 2019, it has elected to join the Pathways to Success program recently established by CMS to build on the ACO program.
POM ACO is one of the few ACOs to have such a long track record of both savings and high quality of care every year under the Medicare Shared Savings Program created under the Affordable Care Act.
The data, released by the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), show the results of a concerted effort by nearly 6,000 physicians and other providers who take part in the statewide Physician Organization of Michigan Accountable Care Organization, LLC (POMACO).
