The problems with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act may be masking another major change in the way health care is delivered to U.S. consumers, experts believe.

At The Atlantic's Health Care Forum in Washington on Thursday, health care and business professionals said that there’s an increasing trend in the industry toward cutting insurance companies out of the process entirely, as large, regional hospital systems move into the insurance business.

we’re witnessing “the end of insurance companies as we know them” and that if they want to survive, they “will have to get into the business of providing care.”

Nice find OP - This changes everything.
My first question is why the hell didn't this go on, oh... forty gawd damn years ago? gaah.gif
Good riddance to insurance companies.
It's time to stop this transfer of wealth in it's tracks, it was never healthcare related.
