Health Care Reform and Economic Recovery: The Path to the New Normal
Recent studies show: 1) most people do not understand the US health system, 2) there's a value gap in the system - people feel there needs to be improvement in the quality and cost of service delivery, and 3) most are not engaged in their own care.
In light of recent reforms, there are questions that will need to be answered: Will those who have not had insurance start to buy it? Will states be able to assume the responsibilities outlined in the new legislation? Will employers drop insurance altogether? Will the delivery system actually perform in a way that reduces cost?
