Case Studies

Multiple clients accepted into ACO REACH Model

In early 2022 HMA and Wakely Consulting Group, an HMA Company, assisted multiple clients with their applications to participate in the new Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Medicare Accountable Care Organization Realizing Equity, Access, and Community Health (ACO REACH) model program. The purpose of this model is to improve quality of care for Medicare beneficiaries through better care coordination and increased engagement between providers and patients including those who are underserved. ACOs and participating providers are held responsible for patients’ total cost of care and must meet certain quality metrics. In return, they have more flexible payment arrangements, can achieve shared savings, and can provide additional services such as telehealth, home-based care, and more options for post-acute care.
