CareMount DCE has been established as a Direct Contract Entity (DCE) by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). A DCE is a group of doctors, hospitals, and other healthcare providers who agree to work together to keep you healthy and to help provide you with high-quality care that lowers overall health care costs.
CareMount Medical (formerly Mount Kisco Medical Group) has been a Medicare DCE since the Medicare Shared Savings Program started in 2012. The medical group is not changing in any way; we are still CareMount Medical and we remain committed to providing the highest standard of comprehensive medical care in a patient-centered and compassionate environment, with the comfort and convenience of being close to home. The only thing that has changed is the type of DCE model in which we are participating; and we have chosen this model specifically because it will allow us to enhance the services we can offer to you in the future.
Your Medicare benefits are not changing in any way. You may still go to any doctor, hospital, or other healthcare provider you choose—whether they are part of CareMount DCE or not. All members of CareMount DCE will work together to see that you get the right care at the right time. We will protect your medical records and privacy. We will work to reduce duplicate tests and duplicate paperwork. We will help everyone work smarter to give you better care. We will coordinate your care according to your medical needs and choices.
