Centura Health redefines the way we deliver care

Centura Health has formed Colorado Accountable Care to participate in the Medicare Accountable Care Organization (ACO) program. Colorado Accountable Care consists of physicians and other health care providers who work together with Medicare to give you high-quality service and care at the right time in the right setting. Physicians work closely together and with other health care providers to coordinate care for Medicare Fee-for-Service beneficiaries who have traditional Medicare.

Through Colorado Accountable Care we can:

  • Improve the health of our Medicare Fee-for-Service patients.
  • Increase patient satisfaction.
  • Lower health care costs for Medicare Fee-for-Service patients by proactively coordinating care.
  • Achieve healthier communities.
