Morning Links

Not a link, but I just got back from a health law conference where every speaker, to a person, thought that ACOs were dead in the water as the Proposed Rules stand today.  It boggles the mind as to why CMS went to this much trouble to write Rules that ultimately incentivized no one to participate, when only large-scale participation would bend the cost curve and affect systemic improvement in care.

In related news, the George Washington University School of Public Health and Health Services released a white paper on the exclusion of Federally Qualified Health Centers from forming ACOs or counting their patients – for whom they are reimbursed globally, instead of on a fee for service basis – for attribution to ACOs.
