How Shared Savings Are Distributed

Good Help ACO anticipates that a portion of the shared savings earned will be retained by the ACO to cover administrative and related costs, and that the remainder will be distributed among the providers participating in the ACO in a manner that takes into account the quality of care provided and the size and complexity of the patient panel coordinated by each such provider.
