Sacramento Business Journal

UnitedHealthcare will significantly expand its accountable care contracts over the next five years in an effort to transform the way health care is delivered, paid for and rewarded, the company announced Wednesday. The Minnesota-based health plan has 40 million members, including more than 95,000 in the Sacramento region. More than $20 billion of the company’s payments to hospitals, doctors and other providers already links a portion of the reimbursement to quality and cost-efficiency measures.
