New ACO Reinsurance Program Launched by Star Line Group, U.S. Advisors and Ascendent Care
Date:11/8/2011

MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Star Line Group, U.S. Advisors and Ascendent Care, announced today a new reinsurance program in response to the final regulations published recently by CMS for the Medicare ACO Shared Savings Program.

"We recognize the unique requirements of organizations that want to participate in the ACO Shared Savings Program and their need to moderate their downside risk in an affordable fashion," notes Robert Tierney, Star Line President.  "We have been tracking this issue from the draft regulations and our team has been working on the development of this new program for a number of months."

The ACO Reinsurance program recognizes the delayed cash flow compared to traditional health care financing mechanisms, as well as other unique aspects of the Shared Savings Program.  It is designed to protect an ACO's capital as they take risk on Medicare members.  

"Our reinsurance program really takes a lot of pressure off the downside risk and the cash flow requirements of the ACO," notes Terry Chesser, President of U.S. Advisors. 

"We have studied the environment closely and believe that we have an ideal program for those ACOs who have the motivation to improve quality and efficiency, yet may not have the deepest balance sheets and would otherwise not be able to take advantage of the Track 2 profit sharing rewards,"  explains Dan Johnson, Star Line Vice President.  

Mike Barrett, CEO of Ascendent Care, further adds "Ascendent is pleased to be involved in the due diligence review of ACOs under consideration for reinsurance, as well as the ongoing reporting and monitoring activities.  It is clear that this will expand the number of organizations that can step up to meet the mission and goals of the Medicare ACO Shared Savings Progr
