Notice to Patients
[Name of Office/Practice/Provider] is part of an Accountable Care Organization (ACO). We’ve teamed up with other doctors, hospitals, and health care providers to make sure you get the best care. We provide coordinated care for you to get well & stay well
- You get patient-centered care focused on YOUR needs.
- Your health care providers can see the same test results, treatments, and prescriptions.
- More coordination helps prevent medical errors and drug interactions.
- You may save time, money, and frustration by avoiding repeated tests and appointments.
- Better communication can help protect against Medicare fraud and waste. •
We may offer telehealth services which let your primary care doctor care for you without an inperson visit, no matter where you live. If you need rehabilitation services or other skilled nursing facility care, you may be able to get this care without a hospital stay. Ask your health care provider if you qualify for these benefits.
Ask about signing up for our secure online portal. You’ll get 24-hour access to your personal health information, including lab results and communication from your health careprovider. When you choose a health care provider that participates in an ACO, they’ll help you get the
right care at the right time. You can visit Medicare.gov and log into (or create) your secureMedicare account to choose a primary care doctor. Medicare protects the privacy of your health information. If you don’t want Medicare to share
