Benefits of an ACO


United Medical Accountable Care Organization (UMACO) providers work together to ensure that you get the right care, at the right time and in the most appropriate setting to ensure a healthier you.

What does it mean for me and my family?


Coordinated. Team-based. Value-Conscious Care.
Providing you the best possible health care goes beyond routine exams and prescription refills (see faqs). As we grow older and our health needs grow, we are often required to visit multiple providers and hospitals, carry out multiple tests or fill various prescriptions. Add to this the various stresses of daily living that can impact our ability to get well and stay well.

In response to this, Medicare is working with your health care providers to promote better, more coordinated health care. United Medical has created a team-based approach to medicine known as an Accountable Care Organization (ACO). Our Care Coordinators seek to build upon the working relationships between our ACO participants and with other providers in the service area, to promote continuity of services —without unnecessary duplication of care.
