DOWNERS GROVE, IL — The Accountable Care Organization (ACO) for Duly Health and Care has earned a perfect 100% — the highest achievable score for quality, while producing $12.6 million in savings for the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP) during Performance Year 2020.
As the largest independent, multi-specialty physician group in the Midwest, Duly and their ACO were assigned over 54,000 Medicare patients in 2020. The organization is the fastest growing Medicare Advantage company in Chicagoland.
“To achieve the highest score possible for clinical quality and to get so much waste out of the system is outstanding,” explained Paul Merrick, M.D., Co-Chairman of the Duly Health and Care Board and Chief Physician Executive. “But to do it while making healthcare more affordable, helping our patents to flourish and bringing back joy to the practice of medicine is truly extraordinary.”
The Medicare Shared Savings Program holds ACOs accountable for quality, experience, and cost of care when evaluating an ACOs performance. A high performing ACO is rewarded with the opportunity to earn shared savings.
“We pride ourselves on not only providing high quality, leading edge medical care to our patients, but also being responsible stewards of healthcare dollars,” said Luke Croswell, Vice President, Value Based Programs, at Duly Health and Care. “We are proud to see the results from the 2020 MSSP performance year showing we continue to accomplish both goals.”
