Time 60 MINS

Previously known as Direct Contracting, the ACO REACH ( which stands for “Realizing Equity, Access and Community Health”) program was created by Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Innovation Center to improve the quality of care for people with Medicare through better care coordination, reaching and connecting health care providers and beneficiaries, including those who are underserved.
