PPACA

  • We’ll consider

    • What PPACA will do (for patients, providers of health care, employers, insurers and states)

    • What Congress might have done differently


Ppaca1

PPACA

  • Much debate and disagreement

    • We live in a highly partisan era

    • Many compromises along the way

      • No public option, for example


On one hand

On One Hand

  • A “far-reaching overhaul of the nation’s health care system”

    • N.Y. Times, March 22, 2010


On the other hand

On the Other Hand

  • “But what about the roughly 160 million workers and their dependents who already have health insurance through an employer? For many people, the result of the long, angry health care debate in Washington may be little more than more of the same.”

    • N.Y. Times, Dec. 25, 2009


On one hand1

On One Hand

  • The legislation “puts into place virtually every cost-control reform proposed by physicians, economists, and health policy experts.”

    • Peter Orszag & Ezekiel Emanuel, NEJM, August 12, 2010


On the other hand1

On the Other Hand

  • "The job of figuring how to cover uninsured people used up all the political oxygen that was available. They didn't have the energy for costs."

    • Alan Sager, quoted by McClatchy-Tribune News Service, April 1, 2010


Concerns about ppaca

Concerns about PPACA

  • Did Congress put many more people into a broken health care system instead of also fixing the US health care system?

  • Was there too much focus on providing more health care and not enough focus on providing better health?
