It has been interesting to monitor news outlets and social media since the U.S. Supreme Court ruled the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was constitutional.
Extremists on both sides excluded, it appears many healthcare providers, associations and the like have made public statements in support of ACA’s promise of affordable healthcare access for all Americans. But how could they not? For the most part, responses have been swift but measured "politically-correct-speak."
Behind the scenes, however, there are many, very real concerns about the ACA and what its true cost is going to be. How will ACA impact the economy, businesses and taxpayers (and yes, it IS a tax, folks). Further, how will the ACA impact the U.S. healthcare system, those who provide care and those who develop leading-edge technology?
Make no mistake about it; the real story has yet to be told. Fasten your seat belts and stay tuned.
