I have a friend who goes to Courage Center for their health care home and he loves it. They have everything he needs all in one place. Isn't this just common sense? Shouldn't doctors have been doing this all along? Especially for people who see lots of doctors, have lots of medications and who cost a lot of money if things go wrong?

This is really an offshoot of Obamacare (ACA) and the concept of Accountable Care Organizations or ACOs. The state has done a good job in moving this concept forward in Minnesota as well as most of the larger providers in the state(eg Mayo and Fairview), but other states are doing this too. Part of the benefits of ACA that republicans want to throw out because of concerns with relatively small parts of the bill. Controlling health care costs will require changes in the delivery system (like this) as well as insurance reform.
