California hands a win to seniors—and a loss to Wall Street! California is on the record opposing the “value-based” payment scheme ACO REACH.
Seniors and people with disabilities on Traditional Medicare can celebrate the passage of Assembly Joint Resolution 4, which puts California on record opposing the “value-based” payment scheme ACO REACH (Accountable Care Organization Realizing Equity, Access, and Community Health) and corporate profiteering in Medicare. Passage of the resolution is a David versus Goliath victory for grassroots activists, seniors, and people with disabilities fighting to protect Medicare from privatization by health insurance companies, private equity, and venture capital.
