Direct Contracting Medicare Program to Improve Health Outcomes

AdvantageCare Physicians participating in new Direct Contracting Medicare program to improve health outcomes

Direct Contracting is a new Medicare program that gives primary care providers an opportunity to improve care delivery and health outcomes for all patients enrolled in traditional Medicare. Under this program, primary care providers(s) can create a “Direct Contracting Entity (DCE)” that can directly contract with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) just like a health plan.

 

As of January 1, 2022, Hudson Accountable Care, LLC (Hudson) participates in the Direct Contracting program with CMS. Hudson is an affiliate of AdvantageCare Physicians (ACPNY). Hudson is located at 55 Water Street, New York, New York 10041. Hudson Accountable Care has been a participant in the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP) since January 2016, and to date has generated over $28 million in total savings for our Medicare population. Hudson hopes to bring its successful MSSP ACO experience into the DCE model to continue to provide coordinated, high-quality care at lower costs to our Medicare beneficiaries. Please check back for forthcoming information about Hudson’s quality and financial performance as a DCE.

Providers who are part of a DCE find that they are able to give their patients better quality care. Medicare benefits for patients seeing a DCE provider will not be changed. However, as a patient of a DCE provider, some special features may be available to you at no extra cost. These special features are listed below:

 

  • Coordination of care between specialists, hospitals, nursing home and case managers
  • Provider registry management to determine care opportunities
  • Outreach to patients including phone and email to ensure follow-up as allowed under applicable state regulation or state medical licensing requirements; self-management support and counseling; some behavior change management, case management and disease management
  • Medication management
  • Care plan follow-up
  • Outreach and care management for patients with chronic disease

 

For information about any of these features, please ask your doctor or healthcare provider.
