Health care groups are still embracing Obamacare models
More hospitals and physicians are participating in financing and delivery models established by the Affordable Care Act — even though Republicans are determined to repeal the law and have offered no details on replacing those models.
What's happening: In a report Wednesday, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services said more health care providers are enrolling in so-called alternative payment models, where hospitals and doctors form networks and are paid based on how well they care for patients. One of the most common models is the accountable care organization.
Why it matters: The continued interest in these models, despite the threat of Obamacare repeal, indicates that health care leaders believe these practices have some staying power.
