As part of its ongoing efforts to lower healthcare costs and improve the quality of care, Cleveland Clinic has formed a separate legal entity, Cleveland Clinic Medicare ACO, LLC, to participate in the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP) as an Accountable Care Organization. In this ACO, Cleveland Clinic employed physicians and independent primary care physicians in the Quality Alliance come together to deliver coordinated care to assigned Medicare fee-for-service (FFS) beneficiaries. Membership in the Quality Alliance for 6 months is a prerequisite to being considered for inclusion in the ACO.
