Aetna, Mount Sinai Health Partners launch ACO alliance

Aetna and New York City-based Mount Sinai Health Partners, a clinically integrated network including Mount Sinai Health System and select physicians, inked a three-year deal to enhance coordinated care and lower costs through an accountable care agreement.

The new accountable care organization helps Aetna transition more fee-for-service reimbursement to value-based payment, while helping Mount Sinai achieve its population health management goals.

"As we've said before, our focus remains on keeping New Yorkers out of the hospital by doing everything possible to ensure access to high-quality, cost-effective healthcare services, and we are proud to work with Aetna on these efforts," Niyum Gandhi, chief population health officer for the Mount Sinai Health System, said in a press release.

With this arrangement, Aetna now has more than 200,000 New Yorkers covered in value-based collaborative arrangements and more than 5.8 million members nationwide.
