Bethesda, Md.-based Aledade — a startup that helps independent physicians participate in value-based care initiatives — is launching its first accountable care program for Medicare Advantage beneficiaries through a partnership with UnitedHealthcare.

The ACO will be rolled out to more than 15,000 MA beneficiaries in Arkansas.

"Aledade is proud to form a strong partnership with UnitedHealthcare to bring high-quality, value-based care to people enrolled in its Medicare Advantage plans," Farzad Mostashari, MD, CEO and co-founder of Aledade, said in a statement. "With this partnership, our Arkansas accountable care program now offers the benefits of Aledade's model of care whether patients are covered by Medicaid, traditional Medicare or Medicare Advantage."

Now in its third year of business, Aledade has helped launch ACOs in Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, New York, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia and West Virginia.
