Tom Tobin turns in one of his typical masterpieces. In a three page article on the new ACO rules included with the Health Care Reform Bill, which includes multiple quotes from six different professionals in the health care industry, there is nary a single positive or even modestly open-minded quotation to use in regards to the new regulations. I guess he just couldn’t find a good one:
Now, I’m not saying that there isn’t plenty to hate about the implementation of ACOs. I really don’t know. I’m also not saying that none of these interviewees ever said a kind word about the Health Care Reform bill or the ACOs implemented by it. I’m sure they said lots of things that didn’t make the article. What I am saying is that I’m pretty sure I’m no more informed about the issue as a result of reading this article.
