Updated Count on Number of Accountable Care Organizations

See this post for a later update

There were 488 ACOs by the end of July 2013, more than double the count from June 2012, according to an updated report from Leavitt Partners. The report also indicates:

  • All 50 states now have a segment of their population covered by an ACO.
  • 253 of the ACOs — just over half — are Medicare-contracted.
  • No single model has emerged as the most successful.

Four examples of ACO models are briefly highlighted in the report — a small physician group ACO, a hospital-led ACO, a hospital-physician group ACO, and a Medicaid ACO.
