Your Medicare benefits stay the same.
The services of RCCO are an added benefit to you, at no cost. You benefit because your doctors will be part of a team focused on giving you the right care at the right time.
Nothing about your Medicare coverage is changing. Your costs will not go up because of RCCO, and you always have the right to use any doctor or hospital who accepts Medicare, at any time.
Protecting your health is the goal of RCCO!
Health care providers in RCCO share information about your health with one another to give you improved coordinated care. RCCO works to make sure your primary care doctor and specialists get updated information on all your medical visits, not just the ones in their offices.
Over time, you’ll notice that:
- You don’t have to fill out as many medical forms that ask for the same information
- The health care providers you see will be better informed about your health, because they’re sharing information
- There’s less chance you will have unnecessary medical tests, because all results are shared among your health care team
- The providers participating in RCCO become partners with you in making health care decisions
