This small, wonky Obamacare program saved $384 million over 2 years

Medicare’s independent actuary has certified that an Obamacare program, the Pioneer Accountable Care Organization (ACO), has saved $384 million over the past two years. The Pioneer ACO rewards hospitals that deliver high-quality care at lower-than-expected costs and punishes high spenders. The Obama administration is now eying how to make this program bigger ‰and, ideally, generate even more savings.
