Welcome to Somos ACO
Recent healthcare reforms have paved the way for physician-led integrated groups of providers to drive the delivery of seamless high quality care for Medicare beneficiaries through improved communication and coordination of services while reducing unnecessary costs. Somos ACO is a patient-centered organization where the Medicare Fee-for-Service patient and providers are true partners in care decisions.
Somos ACO is an Accountable Care Organization ("ACO") as defined by the Medicare Shared Savings Program, which was established as part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010. Somos ACO is an integrated delivery system consisting of primary and specialty care doctors, hospitals, and ancillary providers. Under the Shared Savings Program, Medicare will reward ACOs that lower their growth in health care costs while meeting performance standards on quality of care and putting patients first.
