Your doctors try hard to give you high quality care, but it can be a challenge to juggle information. Medicare wants to make sure your doctors have the resources and information they need to coordinate your care. Working together with Medicare, many doctors, hospitals, and other health care providers have decided to participate in Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) to give better, more coordinated health care to patients like you. If you have Original Medicare and your doctor, hospital, or health care provider decides to coordinate with other health care providers through an ACO, you’ll benefit because they’ll work together to get you the right care, at the right time, in the right setting.
