Medicaid ACOs Fact Sheet

Source: Greenway Health

States around the country are actively beginning to pursue and lay the groundwork for ACOs at the state Medicaid level. These entities are set up and function much like other ACOs through savings sharing, best practices and quality reporting, but exist under the state’s auspices.

  • The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 does not expressly create Medicaid ACOs
  • Some policymakers view Medicaid ACOs as a vehicle to improve physician payments, enhance care coordination, and lower overall costs
  • Medicaid ACO pilots are taking hold in states around the country
    • CO: Operational
    • UT and OR: Set to go live in 2012
    • NJ: Authorized by the state legislature, but needs regulatory authority
    • OK: Developing a Medicaid ACO framework
    • MA, MN, NC, OR, TX, ME & VT: Considering adoption
    • AZ, NY, TN: Could consider adoption given their familiarity with managing health delivery
