And Med Tech is more important than seniors?
Will, The Affordable Care Act only affect seniors. No patient with private insurance that I know of has been asked to sign a form to have their Medical information shared with one of these groups, and there are many. What has been posted is the ACO groups will work with clinics and Doctors who will share the Medicare patients healthcare information with the groups, regardless if the patients disagrees. Is this fair? Where is the confidentiality for the patient? How about Medicare along with these groups, putting out a list to the national media of every so called health care person in these groups and the name of the clinics and Doctors who they will be assigned to. The patient should also get the names, locations, specialties, and Bio's of any of these people who will get their information.
