Medicare has started an initiative where health care providers who share a common set of goals aimed at improving patient care can work together more effectively. This initiative brings together health care professionals in a Direct Contracting Entity (DCE), to work together with Medicare to give you more coordinated care and services.
RENOWN MEDICAL GROUP is voluntarily taking part in this new initiative by joining RENOWN DCE because we think it will help us provide better quality care for our patients.
The RENOWN DCE helps Medicare beneficiaries Fight the Good Fight
by providing access to comprehensive primary care providers and services offered by Renown Medical Group and Geriatric Specialty Care. Beneficiaries aligned with the RENOWN DCE enjoy enhanced care coordination over standard Medicare at no cost to them as well as expanded access to at-home services, including care management and post-discharge home visits. Additionally, some beneficiaries may qualify for chronic care management cost sharing assistance.
You can use this form to confirm that your doctor is the main doctor or other health care professional you see or the main place you go for routine care, to help determine if RENOWN DCE should help coordinate your care. Routine care can include regular care and check-ups you get from a doctor or other health care professional and care for other chronic health problems, such as asthma, diabetes, and hypertension.
Alternatively, instead of completing this form, you can also visit Medicare.gov and select your main doctor or other health care professional in order to determine whether RENOWN DCE should help with coordinating your care. If you make a selection on this form and make a different selection through Medicare.gov, Medicare will prioritize the most recently submitted selection.
Your benefits will NOT change, and you can visit any doctor, other health care professional, or hospital.
Whether or not you complete this form or select a doctor or other health care professional through Medicare.gov, you remain eligible to receive the same Medicare benefits and you still have the right to use any doctor, other health care professional, or hospital that accepts Medicare, at any time. If you have questions, feel free to ask your doctor or other health care professional, call RENOWN DCE at 775-982-5000 or call Medicare at 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227) to ask about DCEs. TTY users should call 1-877-486-2048.
Completing this form or selecting a doctor or other health care professional through Medicare.gov is your choice AND you can change your mind.
If you choose to complete this form or select a doctor or other health care professional through Medicare.gov you should do so yourself. No one else should complete this for you.
No one is allowed to attempt to influence your choice to complete this form or select a doctor or other health care professional through Medicare.gov by offering or withholding anything in exchange for you to complete or not complete the form or to make a selection online. If you feel pressured to sign or not sign this form or to make a selection online, please call 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227). TTY users should call 1-877-486-2048.
Please call 775-982-5000 or update your online selection if you change your mind later about whether you consider RENOWN MEDICAL GROUP to be the main doctor or other health care professional you see or the main place you go for routine care.
