The Drum Beats On

Kaiser Health News has a guest post from Michael Millenson excoriating the Proposed Rules, reinterating the well-published point that CMS may have just killed the concept of an ACO before it even got to the starting line.

We believe that ACOs as a theoretical model still have the potential to reduce cost, improve quality, and improve care, if perhaps only as a part of a multi-front reform initiative.  But without making significant changes, as Mr. Millenson notes so colorfully, CMS may find the list of ACO applicants embarrassingly and disappointingly short.
