Accountable Care Organization Realizing Equity, Access and Community Health (ACO REACH) Model

Accountable Care Organization Realizing Equity, Access and Community Health (ACO REACH) Model

Allina Health System is participating in a Medicare Accountable Care Organization (ACO) model.

An ACO is a group of doctors, hospitals and health providers working together with Medicare to give better service and care to patients.

The goals of an ACO model are:

  • better care for individual patients
  • better health for our communities
  • affordable care for all

This ACO is only for fee-for-service (FFS) Medicare patients and not Medicare Advantage-based beneficiaries.
