About UOP ACO
UOP ACO is an Accountable Care Organization that provides comprehensive services to a defined Medicare fee for service population in southeast Michigan. The key components to our program are high quality care and cost effective care and treatment.
UOP ACO, LLC (“UOP ACO”) was formed on March 4, 2016 as a for profit limited liability company under Michigan law, and was specifically formed to function as a physician owned and directed Accountable Care Organization (“ACO”) to provide private practice physicians the opportunity to drive healthcare quality and financial outcomes. UOP ACO as an entity will only participate with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (“CMS”) in conjunction with the Shared Savings Program.
UOP ACO is not affiliated with one single health system. Rather, UOP ACO collaborates with multiple health systems serving the geographic footprint of the UOP ACO participating physician provider base. In addition, UOP ACO has entered into collaboration agreements with provider/suppliers in the post-acute care network, such as skilled nursing facilities, home health agencies and palliative and hospice care providers. These agreements will focus on coordinated care protocols to achieve the triple aim.
All physicians in the UOP network are independent physicians. Our mission is to provide a voice for physicians who are not hospital or corporate owned.
