MEDICARE ALLIANCE LETTER CLAIRIFICATION

On March 15, 2018, the Mary Washington Health Alliance sent a letter out to our Medicare patients informing them of the Next Generation ACO. Colonial Internal Medicine Associates has partnered with the Alliance, but is still an independent practice. We have partnered with the Alliance to ensure an overall excellent healthcare experience for our patients. Nothing has changed for our patients and the providers they continue to see.  Dr. McDowell and Dr. Marrow are involved in the physician leadership of this Accountable Care Organization (ACO) which is a federal government sponsored initiative to deliver cost effective optimum care to those most in need.    Continuing our practice goals of being leaders in our area's medical care our practice is very pleased to lend its support to this ACO.   

Being a member of this ACO does not change anything with our practice or our leadership.  We are not owned or partnered with Mary Washington Health Care and we maintain our independent and affiliated status with all of the areas hospitals including Mary Washington, Stafford Hospital, and Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center.   By being independent this gives us the ability to focus solely on our patient's individual needs and by partnering with the Mary Washington Alliance ACO it gives our patients further access to resources they may need.

We hope this clears up any confusion the letter sent out by the Alliance this week may have caused you as we have received many calls from concerned patients.   We are very proud of our patients’ relationship with us; and staying an independent private practice with you as our sole focus is our most important priority.   If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call the Practice Administrator, John Graham at 540-374-5599.

        ---Dr. McDowell, President
