Health Wonk Review for July 11, 2018

Summer's Coming Around Again Edition

Summer’s here and the time is right for dancing …. uh … I mean for another edition of Health Wonk Review. Peggy Salvatore, blogger in chief over at HealthSystemEd, has the latest edition and has dubbed it Summer’s Coming Around Again.

It’s a quick read – apparently everyone is at the lake – but it’s loaded with great posts … about the merits (or lack thereof) of health sharing ministries, about work requirements for Kentucky Medicaid beneficiaries, and high-deductible plans. Seven great posts in all. (And thanks, Peggy, for including our post about Obamacare’s impact on mental health coverage.)

Definitely check it out. As Peggy notes, it’s a HOT one!

Next up: Julie Ferguson hosts Health Wonk Review at Workers Comp Insider on August 23.


Steve Anderson is editor and content manager for healthinsurance.org, 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.
