Health Choice Network of Florida is a not-for-profit health center-controlled network governed by a Board comprised of its health center members. HCN members share common business, technology and administrative services, which leads to increased efficiencies, decreased costs and better and more accessible patient care. The network includes 23 centers, which serve over 500,000 patients, approximately 40% are uninsured. Our health centers provide primary and some specialty ambulatory care services, including behavioral health services. HCN members jointly invest in the Network and share in its governance, but each center maintains its independence as a health center with its own community-based board.
Medicare ACOs Continue to Improve Quality of Care, Generate Shared Savings The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced today that Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) participating in the Medicare Shared Savings Program (Shared Savings Program) in 2020 earned performance payments (shared savings) totaling nearly $2.3 billion while saving Medicare approximately $1.9 billion, marking the fourth consecutive year of net savings for Medicare. The Shared Savings Program, established by the Affordable Care Act, promotes accountability for patient populations and fosters coordination of items and services under Medicare Parts A and B. It also encourages investment in infrastructure and redesigned care processes for high quality and efficient health care service delivery. ACOs work to reduce fragmentation in patient care and cost by giving providers the incentives and tools to deliver high-quality, coordinated, team-based care that proactively promotes improved health for all patients. Currently, over 12.1 million Medicare fee-for-service beneficiaries receive care from a health care provider participating in a Medicare ACO.  >Read the Full Press Release
