Required Public Disclosure for the ACO Participation Waiver of Coastal One Health Partners, LLC

The Secretary of U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has made available waivers of certain federal laws to Accountable Care Organizations (“ACOs”) participating in the Medicare Shared Savings Program (“MSSP”).

To avail itself of these waivers, Coastal One Health Partners, LLC (“Coastal One”) is obligated to publically disclose certain arrangements, which are described below.

Coastal One hereby publically discloses the following arrangements:

  • Coastal One and Cottage Health (“Cottage”), a participant in the ACO, have entered into an arrangement dated January 1, 2018, pursuant to which Coastal One is retaining Cottage to provide hospital-based care management services, compliance services, and administrative services to Coastal One for the purpose of assisting Coastal One in its mission of creating cost-effective and sustainable contributions to the overall success of Coastal One (the “Cottage Services Agreement”).

The Coastal One governing body (the “Board”) has reviewed the Cottage Services Agreement and has made a bona fide determination, consistent with the Board members’ duties, that this arrangement is reasonably related to the purposes of MSSP as, among other MSSP goals, the arrangement will provide personnel and infrastructure resources to Coastal One to allow Coastal One to successfully manage and administer its functions in facilitating improvements in care for individuals, better health for populations, and reduced expenditures for Medicare, consistent with the goals of the MSSP.
