Golden Life Healthcare shaves $10M in Medicare costs
Sacramento Business Journal

The group of 65 Sacramento-area doctors at Golden Life Healthcare LLC cut the cost of caring for their Medicare patients by $10 million last year. Claims costs were $959 in December, less than half the $2,112 spent per member per month in January 2013. Costs went up slightly in May and a lot in October, but the trend line for the year is a definite down. The key is keeping patients out of the hospital, says president and CEO Dr. Venu Kondle.
