CIGNA, NY physician group launch accountable care initiative

Business Insurance, January 12, 2012

CIGNA Corp. is launching a collaborative medical home initiative with the Weill Cornell Physician Organization in New York that will operate much like accountable care organizations outlined in the federal health care reform law. CIGNA's collaboration with Weill Cornell is the first such accountable care initiative in New York involving a health plan and a physician organization. CIGNA introduced a similar initiative last month with Partners in Care, an independent physician organization based in New Brunswick, NJ.
