New Way ACO 1-Sided Model
20,000 patients @ $8K average cost/yr (3 yr historic avg.)
Benchmark = $160M
2.5% MSR = $4M
Target Spend = $156M
Performance Year 1 = $140M
Net Savings = $20M
50% of Savings = $10M
FQHC/RHC 2.5% Credit = $0.5M
Total Savings Share = $10.5M
Maximum = 7.5% of benchmark ($12M).
New Way keeps everything.
