Clinic participating in Medicare organization

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

McCOOK, Nebraska -- Nebraska Physicians are participating in a Medicare Shared Savings Accountable Care Organization (ACO).

The SERPA-ACO is the group of Family Practice physicians who voluntarily work together with Medicare to give you high quality service and care at the right time in the right setting. These physicians have chosen to participate in a Medicare Shared Savings ACO and to work closely with other doctors and health care providers to coordinate care for Medicare beneficiaries who have traditional Medicare. "Our healthcare providers choose to participate in our ACO because they are committed to providing you with a high quality healthcare experience," according to Bob Rauner, MD, SERPA-ACO Medical Director.

Our ACO may share in any savings that result from providing you with high quality and more coordinated care. If you have traditional Medicare, you will have the right to use any doctor or hospital who accepts Medicare, at any time. It is always your choice about what doctors you use or hospital you visit. People with Medicare Fee-for-Service will benefit because your doctors will be part of a coordinated team. 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.

SERPA-ACO participating providers provide medical care in these independent Family Medicine Clinics in Nebraska: Butler County Clinic at David City, Central Nebraska Medical Clinic in Broken Bow, Family Medical Center of Hastings, Family Practice Associates in Kearney, Fillmore County Medical Center in Geneva, LifeCare Family Medicine of Bellevue, McCook Clinic, Plum Creek Medical Group in Lexington and York Medical Clinic. According to Joe Miller, MD, SERPA-ACO President, "We have always been committed to providing good quality health care, participating in the ACO is another opportunity to do that."

The SERPA-ACO is a patient-centered organization where the patient and providers are true partners in care decisions. If you have questions about our ACO, you can contact any of the member clinics.
