Community Care Physicians was accepted by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to form an Accountable Care Organization (ACO) called Aurora Community Care ACO (legal entity name Community Care Contracting, LLC doing business as Aurora Community Care ACO). The purpose of this ACO is to enable participation in Medicare’s Accountable Care Organization – Realizing Equity, Access, and Community Health, more commonly referred to as ACO REACH. This is a program in partnership with CMS that focuses on enhancing patient care while lowering the total cost of care for the healthcare system. This is accomplished by compensating providers not for the quantity of procedures performed, but rather for the quality of care we provide, measured by our patients’ health outcomes. As a program of CMS, all CCP primary care practices that care for adults are part of the ACO; that includes all CCP family medicine and internal medicine practices. CCP has also partnered with a company called Honest Medical Group that is also part of this ACO.
