Reconsidering health care reform

One thought on “Reconsidering health care reform”

  1. A public option would take care of that, and a whole lot more. If insurance companies want to stay in business, they would have to compete with a public option, and that means making their plans and policies affordable and accessible to patients and appealing to providers. It would get rid of all of that “pre-existing condition” nonsense and expand drug coverage.
    That much I understand. But it won’t help me if (a) the subsidy to my current company is reduced or stopped and (b) they discontinue my MA as a result and (c) my doctors won’t take whatever I have to pick up in its place. I know Obama’s been saying we can keep our doctors; my concern is whether my doctors will keep me. They get to decide what insurance they’ll accept, not the government.

... and that's my two cents
