What is Duke Connected Care?

Duke Connected Care (DCC) is a physician-led, clinically-integrated network (CIN) that aims to improve the quality of healthcare while addressing the national challenge of rising healthcare costs. A CIN is a group of doctors, hospitals, and other healthcare providers who have elected to partner with health plans to give higher-quality, more coordinated service and care to a group of assigned patients.

Duke Connected Care currently partners with the following plans:

  • Medicare, as an accountable care organization (ACO). As a Duke Connected Care Medicare Fee-for-Service patient, your current benefits will not change—and you will still have the right to choose any doctor or hospital that accepts Medicare, at any time. Please visit www.medicare.gov/acos.html or call 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227) for general questions or additional information about accountable care organizations (TTY users should call 1-877-486-2048).
  • NC Medicaid. Duke Connected Care partners with Managed Medicaid plans serving patients in Region 4.
  • Cigna Collaborative Care, a commercial product available to employers in the Greater Triangle.

Duke Connected Care is administered through the Duke Population Health Management Office.
