Composition of ACO

Corporation formed with sole member as Methodist Hospitals of Dallas d/b/a Methodist Health System, a Texas non-profit corporation

On July 1, 2012 Methodist Patient Centered ACO (MPCACO) was selected to participate in the Medicare Shared Savings Program (Shared Savings Program) Accountable Care Organization (ACO), a multifaceted new program sponsored by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Over 200 physicians are partnering in the Methodist Patient Centered ACO.  See the ACO Governing Structure.

Through the Shared Savings Program, Methodist Patient Centered ACO is working with CMS to provide Medicare fee-for-service beneficiaries with high quality service and care, while reducing the growth in Medicare expenditures through enhanced care coordination.

The Shared Savings Program will reward ACOs that lower their growth in health care costs while meeting performance standards on quality of care and putting patients first. The aggregate amount of savings to-date and distribution of savings is as follows:

Aggregate Amount of Shared Savings/Losses

  • Performance Year 1:  TBD 
  • Performance Year 2:  TBD
  • Performance Year 3:  TBD

How MPCACO Shared Savings Are Distributed 

  • Infrastructure Investment: 33.3% 
  • Physician Distribution: 33.3%
  • Hospital Distribution:  33.3%

To ensure that savings are achieved through improving care coordination and providing care that is appropriate, safe, and timely, an ACO must meet quality standards. For 2012, CMS has established 33 quality measures relating to care coordination and patient safety, appropriate use of preventive health services, improved care for at-risk populations, and patient and caregiver experience of care.
