Westmed Medical Group, UnitedHealth Group to launch ACO

Westmed Medical Group (White Plains, NY) is collaborating with UnitedHealth Group (Minnetonka, MN) to establish Westmed ACO, an accountable care organization. The 220-physician multispeciality group will also work OptumHealth (Golden Valley, MN), the insurance and health information technology services arm of UnitedHealth Group, to launch the organization. Effective April 1, 2012, Westmed ACO will be available to Westchester County residents who are covered by UnitedHealthcare’s Oxford Health Plans fully insured commercial offering. The company plans to seek approval from the New York State Department of Health (Albany, NY) to expand the ACO to include Westchester County residents who are covered under Oxford Health’s fully insured commercial HMO and POS products.
