In this podcast, Jeff Brunken, president of physician insurer MGIS, shares important ACO-related liability issues physicians face.

In this podcast, Jeff Brunken, president of physician insurer MGIS, shares what ACO-related liability issues physicians need to be aware of, and how physicians can make sure they are adequately covered.
