Doctors Offering Price Guarantee To Insurers

Sign Of Change: Doctors Offering  Price Guarantee To Insurers.  In what could be a surprising and growing trend, one of the Midwest’s largest providers of  medical care is bringing a price guarantee to a new concept being  pushed by the Obama administration that rewards doctors and hospitals for working together to improve quality.

Medical care providers like Aurora Health Care in Milwaukee are becoming so confident in their ability to coordinate medical care they are working with insurance companies like Wellpoint and Aetna to offer a price guarantee. It’s the latest in the evolution of ACOs, which are becoming a more popular option over costly fee­for­service medicine. ACOs link medical care providers together to improve quality.

Milwaukee­based Aurora Health Care has formed an Accountable Care Organization (ACO) that is working with Aetna Inc. (AET) and Wellpoint (WLP) subsidiary Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in Wisconsin that are packaging commercial health insurance products using Aurora doctors and hospitals that offer small and mid­sized businesses a “price guarantee.”
