4% of U.S. Doctors Eye ACOs

New Study Reports 4% of America’s 1 Million+ Doctors Plan to Join ACOs in the Next 3 Years

A recent study by leading trade journal Physicians Practice revealed that 4% of physicians surveyed plan to join an Accountable Care Organization (ACO) in the next three years1. That’s over 40,000 new prospective clients in this segment.

From a benefits standpoint ACOs are often considered Multi-Practice Entities (MPE) with specialized insurance needs not addressed by typical LTD products.

MGIS IncomeProtect™ | MULTI-PRACTICE addresses these gaps by allowing MPE member practices to remain independent with separate policies issued to each member practice yet still enjoy many of the benefits typically available only to large organizations. Click here for details.

IncomeProtect, Multi-Practice will:

  • Treat all members of the MPE as a single large group for feature availability, underwriting and pricing approach regardless of practice size
  • Allow tailored plan design, pricing and administration for individual practices
  • Provide single point of administration for sponsors

IDI Supplement Foundation
Best of all, MGIS IncomeProtect™ | MULTI-PRACTICE is built on the IncomeProtect™ LTD insurance foundation that acts as a supplement to a doctor’s Individual Disability Insurance (IDI), providing attractive IDI-style benefits on a group platform that aren’t available with traditional LTD policies. It stacks right on top of IDI coverage without offsets.

Get Ahead of the Wave

The disability policies provide disability income insurance only. They do NOT provide basic hospital, basic medical, or major medical insurance as defined by the New York State Insurance Department.

This coverage does not constitute comprehensive health insurance (often referred to as “major medical coverage”) and does not satisfy the requirement for Minimum Essential Coverage under the Affordable Care Act.
