What is Duke Connected Care?

Duke Connected Care (DCC) is a community-based, physician-led network that aims to improve the quality of healthcare while addressing the national challenge of rising healthcare costs.

Duke Connected Care is an Accountable Care Organization (ACO). An ACO is a group of doctors, hospitals and other healthcare providers who are working together with health plans, like Medicare, to give patients high-quality, coordinated service and care.

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.
