North Bay gets new model for health care
Santa Rosa Press Democrat

Meritage Medical Network, a rapidly growing group of physicians and hospitals in the North Bay, has won approval to launch the region’s first “accountable care organization,” a new type of health care delivery model poised to play a significant role under Obamacare.

As an ACO, Meritage will see its Medicare reimbursements linked to its ability to provide quality care at a lower cost. Any savings it achieves for the government will be shared with Meritage, formerly known as the Marin-Sonoma IPA.
