As a next step in better serving and coordinating care for patients, Collaborative Care Partners, LLC is participating in the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) ACO Realizing Equity, Access, and Community Health (REACH) model to offer benefits to Medicare enrollees who are covered by Traditional Medicare plans. This initiative brings together healthcare professionals in an Accountable Care Organization, to work together with Medicare to provide more coordinated care and services.
CCP works with its participating and preferred providers to add ease and efficiency in providing the care needed without network restrictions. By enhancing provider-to-provider communication and collaboration, providers and CCP work together to improve the overall health and experiences of patients who qualify for and choose Traditional Medicare benefits.
What is an Accountable Care Organization?
ACOs are groups of doctors, hospitals, and other health care providers, who come together to voluntarily to give coordinated high-quality care to their Medicare patients. Goals include:
Avoid/eliminate unnecessary duplication of services
Ensure that patients get the right care at the right time
Advance Health Equity, Provider Leadership & Beneficiary Protections
What is the difference between CCP and Medicare Advantage?
Patients attributed to CCP remain as Traditional Medicare patients and their health care coverage will not change. They retain the freedom to seek care from their established CCP/Medicare provider or any other Medicare provider.
Those who enroll in a Medicare Advantage Plan must seek care within the plan’s specified provider network.
