Equality Health Direct™, a division of Equality Health, is an Accountable Care Organization (ACO) participating in CMS’ Realizing Equity, Access, and Community Health (REACH) Model in Arizona that works directly with local healthcare professionals to provide coordinated high-quality care for Medicare beneficiaries.

Equality Health Direct is participating in an innovative federal program, ACO REACH, which supports coordinated care for Medicare beneficiaries by helping primary care providers coordinate care across multiple settings, spend more time with patients with complex conditions, address inequities impacting overall care and improve patient outcomes. We are voluntarily participating in this initiative because we believe it will help improve the quality of care for patients.

Our Philosophy

Equality Health strives to ensure that all people receive high-quality, affordable, whole-person care that improves and enhances lives regardless of age, gender, race, ethnicity, or income. Our goal is to help patients gain access to quality care that focuses on their overall well-being, addressing physical, behavioral, and social factors, so they can meet their health and wellness goals.

The goals of our ACO, Equality Health Direct, include enhancing the patient experience, improving population health, reducing healthcare costs, improving healthcare providers’ work lives, and participating in CMS’ innovation models.
