Why Cornerstone is the right fit for your ACO’s Needs?

Examples of our recent successes:

IPA/MSO Example - In 2016, Cornerstone created a Risk Purchasing Group (RPG) for a New York based Managed Services Organization (MSO). The group of over 200 multi-specialty physicians has an exclusive group rate with an A++ rated medical malpractice insurance carrier. In addition to the exclusive benefit for its members and the year over year savings, the RPG provides the group with a platform to start assuming risk and create their own self-insured captive. The group saved over 40% since joining together to purchase insurance.

ACCO Program - In 2014, Cornerstone was instrumental in organizing a medical malpractice insurance program for a new ACO organization that consisted of 32 primary care practices located in Pennsylvania & New Jersey. Using our ability to negotiate with the top national professional liability carriers, we constructed a program that saved the average provider 25%in premium and implemented a risk management plan specific to their organization. In just a few short years, this malpractice insurance program has generated almost $1,000,000 in premium savings for its members. We fully understand the value of strategically picking our partners. As a result, we have a proven track record of success and are ready to prove our value to your ACO organization.
