It’s notable that the Administration is now referring to this as “health insurance” reform. Health care reform was just too scary.
The website addresses topics such as:
Your Medicare is safe, and stronger with reform
You can keep your own insurance
Reform will benefit small business, not hurt it
Of course, besides the rabid opposition of some outspoken opponents, the big challenge facing reform is how do we do it without bankrupting the country? Like many experts, I don’t think that can happen with sacrifice from everyone, patients included.
Patients will need to be much more proactive and follow doctors’ orders. Our bad health habits are part of what’s fueling the rising health care costs. So, while the system definitely needs changes, we need to change too.
