Summary Landmark The Washington Post Ç 6 Free download Landmark Free read È 106 His final package include The book’s second section provides an accessible summary of the legislation that Obama signed into law in March 2010 In the third section Washington Post writers answer the most pressing uestions about the health care legislation’s immediate impact Most importantly how will the new bill affect individuals small business owners uninsured Americans with pre existing conditions and twenty somethings on their parents’ policies This is a must read for anyone who wants to understand how this legislation came into being and what the new health care program means. This is a balanced introduction to the first comprehensive health care overhaul in the history of the United States I picked this book up from the library because I am working toward a Masters in Health Information Management The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 is going to significantly alter the way my industry operates I wanted to understand better the goals and policies behind this transition The book did not disappoint Three sections cover the story of the bill s passage the practical implications of the bill and a summary of the bill itself The first section is a fascinating peek into the political maneuvering and strategy it took to get the bill passed I remember the headlines a bit from 2010 Here you get of the drama through anecdotes The second section was the most useful to me As one of the young invincibles that has thus far declined to purchase health insurance after dropping off the parents plan I appreciated the discussion of the costs of caring for the uninsured The goal of universal coverage to my mind justifies the individual mandate as a tax as Justice Roberts recently dubbed it I also welcome the shift to a population health paradigm in thinking about how providers get paid We should be paying doctors to keep us healthy Currently we pay them to give us services when we are sick Promoting preventive care for everyone is a big part of this Will it save us money in the long run That s the big uestion Converting to electronic records reduces a lot of redundancy in records Steering patients away from emergency departments and inpatient stays toward regular office visits is another way to reduce costs As the book mentions however there are other factors to considerI skipped the third section because I m not a lawyer Reading the law itself is neither interesting nor useful to me Overall this book left me with a clearer positive understanding of the bill s intended effects on healthcare in America I certainly have some issues with the way Secretary Sebelius has chosen to implement the preventive care mandate but this book was printed before that discussion began I would recommend it to anyone interested in public policy

Summary Landmark The Washington Post Ç 6 Free download Landmark Free read È 106 The Washington Post’s must read guide to health care reform traces how President Obama and the Democrats achieved this historic overhaul explains the legislation itself and shows how it will impact individual AmericansAfter a year long political war in March 2010 President Obama and the Democratic leaders of Congress achieved a victory that has eluded lawmakers for seventy five years an overhaul of America’s health care system In this indispensable book the staff of the Washington Post tells the story of health care reform and explains what it means for the American peopleIn the boo. I really liked this book and I will tell you why It answered a ton of uestions for me about how this landmark legislation is intended to work and how it may or may not affect me The writing is very accessible although a basic understanding of insurance policy concepts such as cost sharing deductibles etc will be helpful as this understanding is assumed The book itself focuses on explaining the details of the plan itself such as the individual mandate insurance exchanges etc The approach is thorough without being overwhelming and helpful graphs accompany many chapters to visually corral the information There is also an attempt to provide background and context to help explain why a high number of uninsured is a problem as well as a history of how previous administrations have attempted to address the problemI felt that the tone of this book was informational and balanced in it s approach It does a good job of providing perspective from proponents and skeptics when discussing whether the provisions in the new plan will be effective and why certain approaches were included or not However since it is written by staff from The Washington Post I feel that their generally left leaning bias is subtly represented in word choice and perspective This isn t much a problem just something to be aware of regardless of your own political leaningsThe new health care law is broad and sweeping in it s intent This book does a very good job of bringing it into the practical realm of understanding for the average american I wish there were books like this that concisely explain and summarize broad policy issues I kept up with the health care debate through newspapers and broadcast news but this book really brought all the pieces together into one comprehensible picture I highly recommend this to every adult american since the new law will most likely affect each of us specifically in a real and personal manner and this book provides the facts in a mostly non political way In other words don t rely on pundits and candidates to inform your understanding get your own facts
