Many healthcare groups drop U.S. Medicare cost pilot program


quote:

About 20 percent of healthcare systems in a Medicare pilot program aimed at holding the line on costs by shifting incentives away from costly procedures have decided to withdraw from the program after failing to produce savings, the government said on Tuesday.

The withdrawals involve seven of 32 provider groups that signed up for the Pioneer Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) program sponsored by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) under President Barack Obama's healthcare law.


Brings the drop out rate to 28%
