560-member New York medical group expands risk-based contracts with Aetna, Anthem, WellCare

CareMount Medical Group, a 560-physician group in Chappaqua, N.Y., inked risk-based agreements with three Medicare Advantage health insurers: Aetna, Anthem and WellCare.

"By partnering with these top plans, we are focusing on the importance of preventive and value-based care for our senior patients," said Scott D. Hayworth, MD, president and CEO of CareMount Medical.

CareMount, one of the largest independent multispecialty medical groups in New York State, joined CMS' Next Generation ACO model under its managed care subsidiary, CareMount ACO, in April. CareMount currently serves about 40,000 Medicare Advantage members under advanced-risk based contracts.
