The nation’s most fragile, at-risk patient populations are adults with disabilities. The Alliance for Integrated Care of New York oversees the healthcare needs of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. It is the only Medicare Shared Savings Program-approved ACO of its kind in the United States.
The Alliance for Integrated Care of New York initially was owned by a company that controlled a large number of MSSP ACOs. The company was associated with a large, national health insurer. It used proprietary programs to analyze claims data and only shared global information with member practices in formal meetings.
