Participating providers earned a total of $11.3 million in Medicare shared savings from collaborative work to improve beneficiaries’ outcomes and overall health of the Medicare population.

Of the $11.3 million, OneCare paid $8 million of advanced shared savings throughout 2019 to fund the Patient Centered Medical Home, Community Health Team, and SASH population health management payments.
