Your doctors try hard to give you high quality care, but it can be a challenge to juggle information. Medicare wants to ensure that all doctors have the resources and information they need to coordinate your care.
That's why we're working with many doctors, hospitals, and other health care providers that have decided to work together in Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) to better coordinate your care.
If your doctor, health care provider, or hospital decides to coordinate care through this program, you'll benefit because they're working together to get you the right care at the right time in the right setting.
You can always see any doctor or healthcare provider that takes Medicare. If your doctor participates in this program, you can still see any doctor or healthcare provider who accepts Medicare. Nobody - not your doctor, not anyone - can tell you who you have to see. Your Medicare benefits will also stay the same.
