Health Wonk Review for April 19, 2018

Spring Edition

Louise Norris, a frequent contributor at, has posted the latest edition of Health Wonk Review over at her own blog, the Colorado Health Insurance Insider.

Her wrap-up – an ode to spring (for most of us, anyway) – features 10 great posts from HWR’s regular contributors. The line-up includes a couple of posts about silver loading from Andrew Sprung and David Anderson. If you’re wondering what could roil ACA exchange plan shopping, you’ll want to read these posts.

If you’re paying attention to the whole opioid crisis, this also has a couple of posts from distinctly different vantage points. And if you want the latest on costs of health coverage – and healthcare – there are a couple of nice posts about that as well.

Hat tip to Louise for a great wrap-up – and for including our own post: a look at the latest Medicaid-related developments at the state level.

Be sure to check it out.
