Medicare pioneer ACOs save money but lose physicians
from American Medical News
Physicians in nine large groups have dropped out of Medicare's pioneer accountable care organization initiative after just one year of participation, but health policy officials and doctors leading ACO groups said they are not turning their backs on coordinating care for beneficiaries. The 32 pioneer ACOs cut costs for Medicare by 0.3 percent in 2012 while similar patient populations outside of the initiative experienced spending increases of 0.8 percent.
