Firm Client Tops Nation in Medicare Savings

Broad and Cassel client, Palm Beach Accountable Care Organization, tops the nation in Medicare savings, as detailed in the article below from the Palm Beach Post: 

A doctor group based in Palm Beach County leads the country in saving taxpayers money while meeting goals for keeping Medicare patients happy and healthy.

Palm Beach Accountable Care Organization based in Palm Springs saved taxpayers $62 million and was allowed to keep $30 million of that for 2016 because it earned high scores for patient health and satisfaction, according to federal officials. The group ranked No. 2 nationally in shared savings a year ago.

“We’re keeping our patients healthier and out of the hospital,” said board chairman Richard Weisberg. “The savings are good and we’re proud of those. Keeping patients healthy is most important.”

The group of 275 primary-care doctors and 175 specialists serves 69,000 Medicare patients from St. Lucie County to Miami-Dade County.
