WHAT IS CCACO



The Chinese Community Accountable Care Organization ("CCACO") is a physician owned and operated accountable care organization formed in 2011 that is comprised of more than 200 physicians, the majority of which have been in practice for over 10 years practice, that serve approximately 12,000 Medicare beneficiaries within the Chinese communities throughout New York City in the boroughs of Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens. CCACO has over 100 primary care physicians as well as specialist physicians in the areas of cardiology, gastroenterology, otolaryngology, endocrinology, gynecology/obstetrics, pediatrics, and more.


CCACO is well equipped to coordinate and provide culturally competent care to patients in this unique community. The Board of Directors who lead and guide the organization are 11 esteemed physicians, who are each recognized within the community as experts in their particular area of practice.


CCACO has had great success since its creation thanks to the hard work of our members and staff. As of 2019, CCACO has received shared savings for four consecutive years and saved more than $33 million in Medicare expenditure. In addition, CCACO has aligned with another successful ACO - Balance ACO to form Somos ACO in July 2019. See below for our achievements to date!
