Central US ACO is an Accountable Care Organization (ACO) to support providers of health care, located in the Central US region, in the enhancement of high quality services. The physicians and other health care providers of the ACO work together to coordinate care and implement other strategic initiatives aimed at improving the health of their populations, and to achieve better outcomes while reducing unnecessary expenditures.
Patients, who retain their freedom to select the health care provider of choice, continue to enjoy the same benefits of the traditional Medicare program. Additionally, the ACO provides certain care transition services and and wellness initiatives aimed at the three objectives of the Medicare program "to achieve better care for patients, better health for our communities, and lower costs through improvement for our health care system".
