Description

The Medicare Shared Savings Program (or Shared Savings Program) facilitates coordination among providers to improve the quality of care for Medicare fee-for-service beneficiaries while reducing the growth in health care costs. Eligible providers, hospitals, and suppliers may apply to participate in the Shared Savings Program by creating or participating in an Accountable Care Organization (ACO).
Note: Data descriptions are available in the Data Dictionary on the ACOs in Your State webpage at https://www.cms.gov/Medicare/Medicare-Fee-for-Service-Payment/sharedsavingsprogram/ACOs-in-Your-State.html. Look for the Downloads section at the bottom of the page and open the ZIP file to see the Data Dictionary.
The yellow clusters represent the number of ACOs in an area. This area may cover organizations in multiple states. Click on the cluster to view blue dots with fly outs to see actual ACO location.
DISCLAIMER: This information is current as of December 2016. Changes to ACO information occurs periodically. Each ACO has the most up-to-date information about their organization. Consider using them as a resource to obtain the latest information about an ACO.
