Accountable Care Organization FAQ
How do I know if my PCP participates in an ACO?
All UCSF physicians participate in the UCSF ACOs.
How do I know if I will benefit from coordinated care or care support?
If you have a chronic or complex medical condition that is being managed by more than one doctor, or you are struggling with several different medical conditions at once, you could benefit from the care support offered by our ACOs. We have a team of professionals who work together to understand your lifestyle, help you stay on track with your treatments, monitor various prescription drugs and provide health care and wellness coaching in a coordinated manner. This is our Care Support Team. If you do not have complex health conditions and are generally healthy, ACOs are still a good choice because they are committed to providing resources to keep you healthy. Our Care Support Team is available to help patients in the ACOs we participate in and patients who get their primary care from a UCSF Primary Care Provider.
