Accountable care pays off for North County group
San Diego Union-Tribune

About 200 doctors working with Tri-City Medical Center in Oceanside are on pace to earn a total of more than $1 million from Medicare as part of a new program that rewards those who can lower costs without cutting quality.

The North Coast Medical Accountable Care Organization is one of 29 such groups across the nation to save enough in their first year of operation to earn a 50/50 split of those savings with the federal government, according to preliminary data released recently by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
