Moore County Hospital District (MCHD) and all of its inpatient services, outpatient services, and physician clinics, participate in an Accountable Care Organization (ACO.)
An ACO, as defined by the Centers for Medicare, is “a group of doctors, hospitals, and other health care providers, who come together voluntarily to give coordinated high-quality care to their Medicare patients. The goal of coordinated care is to ensure that patients get the right care at the right time, while avoiding unnecessary duplication of services and preventing medical errors.
When an ACO succeeds both in delivering high-quality care and spending health care dollars more wisely, the ACO will share in the savings it achieves for the Medicare program.”
Medicare patients have the right to decline to participate in the ACO program and/or to change the provider who they are attributed to, which means who leads their care in the ACO. This is typically a primary care provider such as a family doctor.
To decline participation in the ACO or to change your provider, please contact MCHD’s Medicare Care Coordinator at (806) 935-7171 extension 2441.
