University of Utah Health Plan Launches Accountable Care Program with Value Based Payments to Providers

Salt Lake City, UT – Officials at University of Utah Health Plans (UUHP) have unveiled the Accountable Care Program, which will serve 56,000 members in Utah. The new program includes a partnership for value based payments between the health plan and the University of Utah Primary Care Physicians Group and is the first Medicaid ACO plan to accomplish this in Utah.

As part of the program, University physicians will monitor and coordinate all aspects of an individual’s medical care. This means patients with chronic conditions like diabetes will see one provider who will coordinate all that patient’s needs, such as diabetes care, eye care, and skin care.
