This issue brief from the Center for Health Care Strategies provides profiles of Medicaid programs in nine state (Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Minnesota, New Jersey, Oregon, Utah, and Vermont) that are implementing accountable care organization (ACO) models. These Medicaid ACOs currently serve over two million Medicaid beneficiaries. The profiles describe payment models, quality measurement approaches, and data analysis strategies. Several additional state Medicaid programs are designing or preparing to implement a form of ACOs. The issue brief was funded by The Commonwealth Fund.
The Center for Health Care Strategies also has published a fact sheet with summary information about these state Medicaid ACOs.
