One year later, Capital BlueCross Accountable Care Arrangements proving successful

Patient participation rates are high

HARRISBURG, PA -- Today marks the one-year anniversary of Capital BlueCross' launch of two Accountable Care Arrangements (ACA). Preliminary results demonstrate that this innovative care delivery model is improving care coordination, lowering the medical cost trend, and improving the member's management of chronic conditions and overall satisfaction with care.  This initiative builds off of the experience Capital BlueCross gained after implementing the region's first private patient-centered medical home pilot in 2010. By focusing on a holistic approach to patient care and working with the patient to establish and manage a comprehensive plan of care, Capital BlueCross and its physician partners are helping to:

  • Enhance patient access to care
  • Decrease the risk of hospital readmissions and preventable complications
  • Promote the use of preventive care and wellness services
  • Facilitate improved communication and care coordination
