Equality Health Direct™ is an Accountable Care Organization (ACO) with physician-governed leadership and a collaboration of like-minded professionals supporting improved care for Medicare beneficiaries through an innovative CMS program.
An innovative CMS initiative, the Realizing Equity, Access, and Community Health (ACO REACH) model aims to support the shift from fee-for-service to value-based care, and to engage with Medicare beneficiaries in coordinating care while reducing the provider burden to meet healthcare needs effectively.
