OneCare, according to its website, “is an accountable care organization (ACO) working with Medicare, Vermont Medicaid, Commercial, and Self-Funded insurance programs to improve the health of Vermonters, championed by politicians of all stripes.”
Self-described as “an extensive network of primary and specialty care physician members, hospitals, post-acute care facilities and other healthcare stakeholders all agreeing to focus on improved health, higher quality, lower cost increases and greater coordination of care for all of our Vermonters,” why would Rutland physician Louis Meyers brand it a “for-profit monopolistic take over of Vermont’s health care system?” And what is he and others doing to challenge it and offer an alternative vision for modern health services? Listen and find out the answers to those questions and more.
James is on the air, casting pods and streaming live every Wednesday at 2pm and taking your calls at 802.335.2565.
