Accountable Care Organization (ACO) demonstration

The ACO demonstration for Atlanta, GA beneficiaries, Kaiser Permanente, a TRICARE Prime Option has ended

The Accountable Care Organization (ACO) demonstration, Kaiser Permanente, a TRICARE Prime option, ends on Dec 31, 2022. If you have this plan, you must change your Primary Care Manager (PCM) to a new TRICARE network provider or enroll in TRICARE Select during TRICARE Open Season. For 2022, Open Season is from Nov 14 to Dec 13, 2022. 

If you don’t choose a PCM before the end of Open Season, one will be assigned to you. If you choose to remain in Prime, please use our PCM Selection tool to find a new PCM. If you would like to switch to Select, please use our Find care tool to find a network specialist. 

Once you have made your selection, please call us at (877) 414-9950 and select option 2 so we can make your changes. 

Talk to your doctor about prescriptions you have with Kaiser Permanente. Also, ensure you have the right amount while you transition to a new provider.

The Accountable Care Organization (ACO) Demonstration was developed/implemented by the Defense Health Agency (DHA) to conduct and evaluate value-driven initiatives in an effort to move from a volume-based reimbursement system to a value-based reimbursement system for health care services. The Demonstration was contracted for three years, which allowed DHA to gather knowledge from lessons learned and improve on initiatives that will drive future expanded iterations of value-based care models.
