Mount Sinai Accountable Care Organization
An Accountable Care Organization (ACO) is a network of doctors and hospitals that shares responsibility for delivering high-quality, coordinated care to patients. Mount Sinai Care, LLC, has been selected to participate in the Medicare Shared Savings Program (Shared Savings Program) Accountable Care Organization, a health care delivery model sponsored by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
Mount Sinai Care
Mount Sinai is committed to providing you with the best and most appropriate care. Mount Sinai’s participation in an ACO is an opportunity to integrate our innovative programs, pool resources and develop new methods for streamlining that care across a range of services — from chronic disease management, to specialty care and complex procedures to promoting prevention and wellness. Our specially trained care coordinators, and other health care providers, will work together to streamline communication and integrate our services to better serve our patients.
If your doctor chooses to participate in an ACO, you will be notified. This notification might be a letter, written information provided to you when you see your doctor, a sign posted in a hospital, or it might be a conversation with your doctor during the next visit. If your doctor participates in an ACO, you still will have the option to see any health care provider who accepts Medicare. To learn more about ACO, visit our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page.
If you aren’t sure if your doctor or health care provider is participating in a Medicare ACO, ask him or her. For general information on ACOs, call 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227) 24 hours a day 7/days a week. TTY users should call 1-877-486-2048.
