Health Wonk Review for November 18, 2015

Counting Our Blessings Edition

A hearty “Well done!” to Brad Wright, who hosted the latest edition of Health Wonk Review over at Wright on Health this week. Health policy lovers will be giving thanks for 11 compelling posts, niftily nestled among a wonderful collection of Norman Rockwell Thanksgiving classics.

We’re giving special thanks to Brad for including our submission, Wendell Potter’s great read, Is Obamacare collapsing? (Spoiler: No.)

As usual, the posts that caught our eye are Obamacare-related, including Joe Paduda’s ACA – What Can We Expect In The Healthplan Market In 2016;  a post from Louise Norris about what we can learn from the CO-OP failures; and Hank Stern’s post about folks who 2 million Americans who are missing out on subsidies because they didn’t buy a qualified health plan through the marketplace.

There’s all that and seven more great articles (and a bunch of great Norman Rockwell art), so head on over to Wright on Health.

Did we mention we’re grateful to be a part of the Health Wonk Review team? We definitely it among our blessings.

Have a great Thanksgiving and we’ll see you on December 3rd, when Peggy Salvatore hosts HWR over at Health System Ed Blog.

Steve Anderson is editor and content manager for, where he’s been writing about health insurance and health reform since 2008. He’s been fortunate to have worked with a talented team of health policy writers.
