Fletcher Allen and Dartmouth-Hitchcock have created OneCare Vermont, a state-wide accountable care organization (ACO) working with Medicare. OneCare Vermont comprises an extensive network of providers, including all 14 of Vermont's hospitals, Dartmouth-Hitchcock in New Hampshire, hundreds of primary care physicians and specialists, two federally qualified health centers, and several rural health clinics, to coordinate the health care of approximately 42,000 of Vermont’s 118,000 Medicare beneficiaries.
The Becker's Hospital Review publication has named OneCare Vermont to its new list titled "100 Accountable Care Organizations to Know.” Read the press release.
OneCare Vermont is about improved health, higher quality, and greater coordination of care for our patients. If you are a Medicare beneficiary and your primary care doctor is part of the OneCare Vermont participant network, you will not experience any change in your Medicare Fee-For-Service Program benefits. Learn more about how OneCare Vermont can benefit you.
OneCare Vermont offers an opportunity to develop the clinical and business relationships that will enable all participating health care organizations to be successful in an accountable care environment. Participation in a Medicare ACO is a significant first step in moving away from a fee-for-service reimbursement model to one in which providers are accountable for coordinating the health of a defined Medicare population in a way that doesn’t change the program for Medicare beneficiaries or expose providers to financial risk from Medicare.

This website will be a future source of information available to OneCare Vermont network participants.
