Through acquisition, CCA Health Michigan builds on current offerings including Medicare Advantage health plans, an ACO, and a physician organization
DETROIT – CCA Health Michigan, a leading integrated healthcare organization with proven expertise in complex care coordination, is growing its presence through the acquisition of the Greater Genesee County Accountable Care Organization (GGC ACO). The GGC ACO, which was the highest-performing Michigan ACO in the Shared Savings Program in 2021, will serve 23 primary care practices with an estimated 5,500 Medicare patients when it officially joins CCA Health Michigan as of January 1, 2023.
“The Greater Genesee County ACO is a well-established organization with a deep understanding of the local community, strong relationships, and a proven track record of success,” said Brian Keane, General Manager, CCA Health Michigan. “We’re thrilled to partner with this talented and dedicated group of providers because they share our passion for improving the lives of the individuals we serve through highly coordinated and compassionate care.”
Earlier this year, CCA Health Michigan was launched following a majority stake acquisition of Reliance Healthcare by Commonwealth Care Alliance® (CCA), a national, multi-state integrated care system influencing innovative models of complex care nationwide. The acquisition included the Reliance Medicare Advantage plan, Reliance ACO, and Reliance Physician Organization (PO). The Medicare Advantage plan was rebranded to CCA Health Michigan in August of 2022, while the ACO and PO were rebranded this month and are now known as: CCA Health ACO and CCA PO.
GGC ACO joins CCA Health ACO with 23 primary care practices in the greater Genesee County area who aim to enhance patient care and improve health outcomes while lowering associated costs. By promoting coordination of care and communication between all providers, GGC ACO’s goal is to ensure patients receive the right care, at the right time, and in the right setting.
“As an organization with strong provider roots, CCA Health Michigan is on a mission to drive innovative, patient-centric models of care that improve long-term clinical and quality outcomes,” said Nazmul Haque, M.D., MRCP, Special Advisor and Board Member, CCA Health Michigan. “GGC ACO is a high performing organization that will help us deliver on this mission. We look forward to collaborating by sharing tools, analytics, and resources so that together we can deliver value-based, cost-effective care to those who need it most.”
