About Us

NYS Elite Accountable Care Organization was formed in May 2013 by a group of elite and very influential physicians in the New York City metro area. NYS Elite received approval from CMS as an ACO effective January, 2014.

Their mission with the creation of New York State Elite (NYSE) Accountable Care Organization (ACO) is to develop population health management that is value-based and cost-efficient, driven by quality metrics and data. They seek to be different, striving to ensure the Medicare Fee-for-Service patient receives cost-effective quality services, with full resolution of healthcare issues. While current healthcare systems enable and even encourage receiving maximum compensation from patients, with patients being sent for various unneeded tests and procedures, New York State Elite (NYSE) Accountable Care Organization (ACO) affirms that a patient receives good care which concentrates on the patient's specific problems, without excess testing or cost inefficiencies.

Medicare Shared Savings Program Participation Waiver Notification

NY Elite ACO participates in the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP) and certain waivers available to it through the MSSP. Specifically, NY Elite ACO has utilized the MSSP participation waivers in connection with the following program.

NY Elite ACO has contracted with Laboratory Corporation of America Holdings (LabCorp) to assist in the implementation and on-going operation of LabCorp’s Care Intelligence (CI) platform. The CI application is specifically designed as a population health management tool which will track various membership quality measures and clinical outcomes. The CI application also facilitates NY Elite ACO’s efforts to implement case management and care coordination of its MSSP attributed lives.

LabCorp’s CI application and LabCorp support for NY Elite ACO were reviewed by and received NY Elite ACO governing board approval and confirmation that such programs meet the purposes of the MSSP and thus qualify for participation waiver treatment under MSSP.
