Catholic Health Services of Long Island (CHS) is committed to providing high value care. CHS participates in multiple value-based arrangements and anticipates that more of its care will be under such arrangements in the future. CHS Physician Partners is a MSSP Track 1 ACO that is in its second three-year contract. CHS plans to extend the current contract, which runs through 2018. Beacon Health Partners (BHP) has approximately 39,000 attributed lives and 1,100 participating physicians. This includes approximately 400 CHS employed physicians and 700 community physician members of CHS’ well-developed IPA. Although BHP has not yet earned any shared savings, CHS has invested substantial resources during the past year to strengthen BHP’s ability to earn shared savings during its next contract with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). CHS is also a participant in New York State Medicaid’s Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) program and several commercial shared savings arrangements.
