What Is This Letter I Received Regarding ACO?

Notification letters were mailed to many of our patients and appeared to be on Henry County Hospital letterhead. This letter is not a scam, and important information for you to know.

Henry County Hospital is participating in an Accountable Care Organization (ACO). We have joined an innovative program with several other central Indiana community hospitals and their physician groups to help our patients maintain their health and improve access to our services. By participating in this partnership we will enhance care delivery in our community.

!. Your Medicare benefits will not change.

2. An ACO is a new approach to taking care of Medicare patients.

3. A new asset to our care team and to you is the addition of Care Coordinators who will work closely with providers and community resources to assist you with your efforts to stay healthy, secure care when you need it, avoid repetitive tests and navigate the health system.
