Quick Links: CO-OPS, ACO Lepers, VT

Jared Rhoads of the Lucidicus Project notes, "Government-backed CO-OPs stunt innovation".

Dr. Stewart Segal describes how ACO rules will encourage providers to dump expensive patients at "ACOs and the modern day leper".

In the 7/17/2011 Washington Examiner, Sally Pipes observes "It's déja vu all over again in Vermont".
