Medical ACO's came out on Jan 1 , 2012. How does that affect you and your diabetes and provider?

Has anybody looked into this new ACO rules and operation adn how they might be affected yet.

I found a concerning set of comments about this and attached the article.

My concern is that one can be affected and signed over to a provider who iS an aco WITHOUT notice as patient.

If this is wrong place to put this - please advise!

Anybody done any digging or impacted yet - comments:
