Patients

What is UpStream Carolinas?

UpStream Carolinas is an Accountable Care Organization (“ACO”) in the ACO REACH Model led by UpStream Care Company.

UpStream has partnered with primary care providers to:

  • Increase satisfaction and improved health

  • Reduce hospital admissions

  • Reduce barriers to care like out-of-pocket cost

  • Reduce burden and stress for informal caregivers

If my Primary Care Provider is part of an ACO does this impact my choice of provider or Medicare benefits?

ACO participation does not impact your choice to see other providers. Your Medicare benefits will remain the same.

If you have other questions about the ACO REACH Model, you may call Medicare at 1-800-MEDICARE or you can reach out to us at 1-888-333-0702.
