What is a Next Generation ACO?
The Next Generation Accountable Care Organization (ACO) is a group of doctors, hospitals, and health care providers working together to provide you with higher quality, coordinated care and lower overall costs. The goal of an ACO is for your doctors to communicate more closely with your other health care providers to meet your unique individual health care needs and preferences. All of the health care providers participating in Monarch’s Next Generation ACO have joined with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in committing to your needs and preferences, and to emphasize the coordination of your care. In addition, Monarch’s ACO can provide nurse, pharmacist and health educator services if you have questions or need additional support for any health related needs.
