Full disclosure. I am a reluctant ACA supporter. In my view the only thing worse than the ACA is no ACA. It has solved some problems, extended care to millions, and also attempts to make a start on addressing cost issues through some of the rules on readmissions, creation of ACOs, etc. I've read many books on health care/insurance issues, and have a pretty good understanding of how other countries long ago attacked and solved the problems (yes, it is an ongoing battle everywhere) so I looked forward to a conservative slant on solving the complicated, costly maze of health insurance in the United States.
The book is short on specifics. But one noteworthy proposal by Mr Klein had me shaking my head in agreement and that was to open up the individual markets to anybody with an employer-based plan. Employer-based plans enjoy tax free treatment both on the employer and employee side. Employees have little to no choice in a plan, the employer picks it for them. Allowing everybody to shop for their coverage, requiring employers to contribute to an HSA for the employee (yes HSA rules need to be changed), would increase choice and competition in the markets. It seems this should be a targeted improvement to the ACA but conservatives have been too hung up on slaying the beast rather than solving problems.Read more ›
Having read the 2,400 pages or so of the so–called ObamaCare Act, it appears that Philip Klein writes like a journalist – who hasn't read the Act.
Oh, I see that Philip Klein is indeed a journalist.
