Steward Promise is an Accountable Care Organization (ACO). An ACO is a group of doctors, hospitals, and HCPs working together with Medicare to provide you high quality service and care. Your Steward doctor will communicate with you and work with your Steward health care team to help you stay healthy and provide the care you need when you’re sick.
After an extensive application process, Steward Health Care was accepted into the program
No, Steward Health Care is not an insurance company, Medicare Advantage plan, or a health maintenance organization (HMO). It is a health care network focused on coordinating care and improving quality in a confidential and secure manner.
Having the right information is important to your HCPs. Medicare will share information with Steward Health Care to improve your care. This information includes things such as visits to the doctor or hospital, medical conditions, and prescriptions and tests you’ve had or are scheduled to have in the future. This up-to-date medical information will help your doctor and your other HCPs and hospitals in the Steward Promise network give you high quality care.
Your privacy is very important to us. Just like Medicare, we put
important safeguards in place to protect your medical information. As a
health care organization, Steward Health Care is required by law to
comply with all policies and regulations associated with the Health
Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Health
Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH)
regarding privacy and security of patient information.
Remember, you control the use of your personal information and can decline to have your personal information shared with us by calling Steward Promise at 855-266-7587 or 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227).
