NY doctors, insurer try to change primary care
Independent Health and 140 primary care doctors rolled out a new program last week that they hope offers a vision for changing the way basic medical care is provided to 72,000 patients in the region. This alliance of Independent Health and the 140 physicians, called the Primary Connection, reflects one of many examples here and nationwide of the healthcare system attempting to reform itself even before major elements of the Affordable Care Act, the federal health reform law, take effect.
