Poster Children for New Health Care Model Won’t Participate in Model Program


The administration has been pushing very hard on the Accountable Care Organization (ACO) model, which is a somewhat nebulous concept, but which is broadly supposed to save money by streamlining services and coordinating care.  It's one of the centerpieces that pro-Obamacare wonks point to as a real source of cost savings and improved services.  Exhibits A and B are usually Mayo and the Cleveland Clinic, with a few others occasionally thrown in.
