An ACO for

Long-Term Care

Our Mission

Dedicated to serving providers with critical resources, we have made it our mission to support the development of innovative care practices to achieve quality improvement goals, cut costs, and alleviate risk.

About Value-Based Long Term Care

VBLTC is an Accountable Care Organization (ACO) participating in the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP).

Our ACO focuses on patients in long-term care facilities and the health care providers who direct their care.

VBLTC partners with medical practices whose clinicians work primarily in nursing homes, helping them thrive under value-based care.

Why We Started VBLTC

Hospital and physician-run ACOs have attempted to reduce the cost of care by targeting Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNFs).

This leaves Long Term Care providers and facilities as victims of ACOs. VBLTC’s vision is to turn this picture upside down and make Long-Term Care providers beneficiaries of the Shared Savings Program, not victims.

VBLTC sees Long-Term Care residents as an opportunity to create a favorable business atmosphere. Historically, they have high costs and benchmark prices in the ACO programs. Most of their costs are related to inpatient hospital care.

VBLTC caregiving

Reducing avoidable hospital stays represents a substantial savings opportunity, which translates into a revenue opportunity for an ACO.

How We Work

VBLTC contracts with Medicare as an ACO and contracts with provider groups to be members of the ACO.

Medicare calculates expected annual costs for members of the ACO and compares actual prices to those “benchmarks.”

When costs are below the benchmarks by at least 2%, Medicare writes a check to the ACO for 50% of the savings.

The ACO then distributes that amount to its constituents.

Our Team

VBLTC leadership combines experience in long-term care with value-based care experience.

Our leaders bring vision and insight to the unique needs of long-term care patients and providers that helps direct our strategy and partnerships.

For Practices/Providers

An ACO is only as strong as the group it surrounds itself with. By joining our dedicated community, practices and clinicians benefit in many ways from our program. Some of these include:

  • Shared savings bonus expected to add 25-60% more revenue with little added cost
  • Stock in the ACO is “earned” through savings and attribution
  • Advanced APM Bonus replaces MIPS and guarantees of 5% bonus check when ACO reaches Level E
  • Coordination and alignment with building operators who can have a stake in the ACO

With such compelling incentives, our community ensures that quality care is delivered at a lower cost to benefit the operations of our practitioner members. Not to mention that our organization allows some of the very best healthcare experts in the industry the opportunity to work hand-in-hand with one another.
