LMH joins national rural ACO
Logansport Memorial Hospital has become a participant of the National Rural Accountable Care Organization. Since passage of the Affordable Care Act, more than 360 ACOs have been established, serving over 5.3 million Americans with original Medicare.
The NRACO is a collaboration of nine innovative rural communities in Indiana, Michigan and California that are working together to improve care for rural Medicare beneficiaries.
Medicare patients still have the right to see any doctor or hospital that accepts Medicare, at any time, regardless of whether their primary care provider has opted to participate in the NRACO. Medicare patients’ current benefits and the cost of coverage will not change as a result of this program.
Williams earns insurance license
Bridgett Williams, of Logansport, recently received her property and casualty insurance license, a certification required by the state of Indiana to conduct insurance business in the state. She was hired by Ed Nason Insurance Group in October 2013.
