For MEDICARE ACO REACH MEMBERS
Your Medicare Benefits Will Remain the Same
ACO REACH stands for a Accountable Care Organization (ACO) Realizing Equity, Access, and Community Health. Medicare has started an initiative that enables health care providers who share the common goal of improving patient care to work together more effectively. Health care professionals in our ACO are now able to work together with Medicare to give you more coordinated care and services.
If you were aligned with C3 by Medicare or you have chosen to be aligned with our ACO REACH, your Medicare benefits will stay the same. You can continue seeing any Medicare health care provider you choose.
Member ID Cards
You will not receive an additional ID card and all services will be paid for by Medicare. You should continue to use your Medicare beneficiary ID card.
