If you feel you haven’t quite gotten your fill of health policy for the week, head on over to xpostfactoid for the latest edition of Health Wonk Review. Host Andrew Sprung has dedicated this edition to the individual who continues to suck the air out of every room: President Trump.
It’s a quick read, but loaded with, as always, with something for everyone, with – in Andrew’s own words –
“snapshots of a country that continues to trail its peers in population health measures; an opioid vendor looking to short-circuit potential tobacco industry-level liability; an individual market for health insurance offering unaffordable plans to many of the unsubsidized, and freakish bargains to some of the subsidized; and, for a little futuristic relief, a human resources tech vendor that may chain healthcare data to a block, where it shall remain unaltered forever and ever.”
It’s great stuff. Our thanks to Andrew for graciously including our recent post – timely reading for folks who may be wondering just how long they can go without insurance before they’d face the ACA’s individual mandate.
Next up: Julie Ferguson hosts Health Wonk Review on December 14.
