Independent in All We Do

What is an ACO?

An Accountable Care Organization (ACO) is a healthcare organization that ties provider reimbursements to quality metrics and reductions in the cost of care. ACOs in the United States are formed from a group of coordinated health-care practitioners. According to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, an ACO is, “…an organization of health care practitioners that agrees to be accountable for the quality, cost, and overall care of Medicare beneficiaries who are enrolled in the traditional fee-for-service program who are assigned to it.”

PACN – ACO is the only ACO endorsed by the Pennsylvania Medical Society.


At no risk to practitioners and their practices, PACN-ACO offers their members countless opportunities for new money. This directly benefits members by delivering more than 35 independent practices into a medicare shared savings program. The PACN ACO is self-governed by PACN member-led communities, giving us a unique competitive advantage over most PA-based CINs.
