About Doctors Connected®
Carilion Clinic and some of our partners have chosen to participate in Doctors Connected, a Medicare Accountable Care Organization (ACO).
We're Working to Improve Your Care
An ACO is a group of doctors and other health care providers working together with Medicare to give you better service and care. The goal of an ACO is for your doctors and your other health care providers to communicate closely and meet your unique individual needs and preferences. Doctors Connected may be rewarded for collectively working with Medicare to provide you with more coordinated care.
You Can Still See Any Doctor or Go To Any Hospital
Your Medicare benefits are not changing, and you will still receive your benefits through Original Medicare. This isn't a Medicare Advantage plan or an HMO plan. You still have the right to receive care from any doctor or hospital that accepts Medicare, at any time. We may continue to recommend that you see particular doctors for your specific health needs, but it's always your choice.
You Control Your Personal Information
To help us give you the right care in the right place at the right time, Medicare will share some information with us about your care. This information will include things like visits to the doctor or hospital, medical conditions, and prescriptions. Having this information will help us coordinate your care, because we'll have the most up-to-date information about your health. Your privacy is very important to us, and you control the use of your personal health information. Like Medicare, we have important safeguards in place to make sure your medical information is safe.
