The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services announced the 2020 results for the Medicare Shared Savings Program and Wellstar Clinical Partners Medicare Accountable Care Organization helped CMS save over $18 million for the entire performance year.

During the 2020 calendar year, WCP Medicare ACO also received its highest quality score and yielded the third-best financial performance, resulting in cost savings for patients.

Wellstar achieved a quality score of 97%, a metric that rates ACOs on patient experience, patient safety, preventive health and at-risk populations. The WCP Medicare ACO performed in the top 15% of ACOs for 2020 based on generated savings, out of more than 500 other ACOs.

One of the largest and most experienced ACOs in Georgia, the WCP Medicare ACO is consistently named one of the top ACOs in the country. Additionally, the ACO is the only one in Georgia to help Medicare bend the healthcare cost curve for seven of the last eight years.
