Cutting costs: Michigan physicians improve care for Michiganders, save Medicare $43.1 million

A team of Michigan physician organizations – including Michigan Medicine – improved care for more than 77,500 Medicare participants across the state, while making a positive difference in the cost of that care, according to data released by the federal government.

In fact, the Medicare system saved $43.1 million on the care of those Michiganders in 2018. At the same time, that care met high quality standards.

The data, released by the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, show the results of a concerted effort by nearly 6,000 physicians and other providers who take part in the statewide Physician Organization of Michigan Accountable Care Organization, LLC.
