Coordinate Your CareACOs don’t change your Medicare benefits
An ACO is not a Medicare Advantage plan or an HMO plan. If you have traditional Medicare, you still have the right to use any doctor or hospital who accepts Medicare, at any time. Your doctor may continue to recommend that you see other particular doctors for your specific health needs, but it’s always your choice about what doctors you use or hospitals you visit.
How will an ACO help my doctor coordinate my care?
You benefit because your doctors will be part of a better coordinated team. You may not have to fill out as many medical forms that ask for the same information. Each of your doctors will not only know about the health issues they’ve treated, they will have a more complete picture of your health through talking with your other doctors.
If you have questions or concerns, you can talk with your doctor at anytime. You can also visit www.medicare.gov/acos.html or call 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227). TTY users should call 1-877-486-2048.
