ABSTRACT
Roberts, R-Kansas, and Cortez Masto, D-Nevada, introduced the Rural ACO Improvement Act to support rural health care providers that are delivering high quality care as part of accountable care organizations. "Ensuring Americans living in rural areas have access to quality health care is crucial, and a key part of such access is utilizing accountable care organizations to provide high-quality services while reducing costs", Roberts said. When ACO providers work together to improve care and lower costs below what Medicare expected to spend, Medicare saves money.
