Midwest Health Coalition ACO

Midwest Independent Physicians Practice Association – better known as MIPPA - is a collaborative of over 175 private practices extending across the state of Nebraska and Western Iowa. With over 900 providers, this association supports and strengthens physicians to act as the advocate for patients and to deliver quality health care in our communities. One way MIPPA is dedicated to improving the quality of health care for the Medicare Fee-for-Service Beneficiaries in our communities is through the formation of an Accountable Care Organization (ACO) called Midwest Health Coalition.

Please note, the ACO-40 Depression Remission at 12 months quality measure is not included in public reporting due to low sample size.  The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) also waived the requirement for ACOs to field a CAHPS for ACO survey for PY2020 through the Physician Fee Schedule Final Rule for Calendar Year 2021.  Additionally, CMS reverted ACO-8 Risk-Standardized, All Condition Readmission and ACO-38 Risk Standardized Acute Admission Rates for Patients with Multiple Chronic Conditions to pay-for-reporting, given the impact of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) public health emergency (PHE) on these measures."
