Williams has broken this week’s posts into “optimistic and pessimistic” categories. He starts with the glass-half-empty posts (and I must say it’s a relief to see only four).
There’s one post about the high risks that temp workers face, another on the down side of electronic health records (EHRs), a NOT rose-colored-glasses view of ACA’s catastrophic plans, and then, I guess you’d call it an obituary for a blog.
But wait, John Goodman is optimistic – with ideas for improving insurance; Brad Wright “notes that Chicken Little hasn’t come home to roost, even if there have been problems with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act”; and Managed Care Matters says there are tools in place to prevent an Obamacare death spiral.
And some really good news: Obamacare ‘horror stories’ are being debunked everywhere – and Maggie Mahar’s two recent posts at healthinsurance.org are hard-hitting. (They’ve drawn high-profile kudos – and even a “mea culpa” from the newspaper that drew Maggie’s criticism.
(It should come as no surprise that we agree the glass is definitely half full.)
