The latest edition of Health Wonk Review has been living and breathing on the web since Thursday, but I know some health policy buffs will probably be catching up on their reading Sunday morning. So here’s a quick rundown of some of the great posts rounded up by host Billy Wynne over at Healthcare Lighthouse.
- A nice piece by Brad Wright about how expanding health insurance coverage won’t necessarily mean long lines at the doctor’s office.
- A reassuring post about individual market rate increases in Colorado from Louise Norris.
- Another reassuring post from our own Joanne Boyer, who advises folks freaked out about PreferredOne’s exit from MNsure to just take a deep breath.
- Not as reassuring? John R. Graham’s NCPA post predicting that ACA’s 2015 open enrollment won’t be pretty.
Off the well-worn health reform track, there are a bunch of great posts on topics like the role of insurers, a comparison of reform initiatives, and good news about job-based fatalities. And there’s more … enough, in fact, to keep you engaged through even the deepest cup of coffee.
