What I Am Thinking About Today – PPACA

As the PPACA repeal, replace or something else debate continues, I’ve been listening for voices that advocate first for starting any change with an assessment of what would meet real people’s health care needs today. There is a lot of concern about access and more concern for those who face immediate to chronic conditions, for aging issues,
concern for those who might lose insurance and more.  But at this juncture I don’t hear much on starting anew with an overall design to manage a very large system of health care. Right now there are lots of piecemeal policy and funding discussions that surface from various sources and also legislators continuously air their views on government’s role. But, a back to basics assessment based on needs and coupled with a coherent business plan market based design, that seems to be missing.
