When your health care providers participate in an ACO, you should see better, more coordinated care over time. With an ACO, you’re the center of care, and your satisfaction is on of the goals. Over time, you may notice that:
- You don’t have to fill out as many medical forms that ask for the same information.
- The health care providers that you see all know what’s going on with tour health because they communicate with each other.
- You don’t need to repeat medical tests because your results are shared among your health care team.
- The providers participating in the ACO will work with you to make sure the care decisions reflect your preferences.
