Across the country, politicians are playing doctor – pushing for laws that intrude into exam rooms and conflict with professional and ethical standards of medical care. But this is no game. The laws they are passing put politicians’ words into the mouths of health care providers, prohibit providers from communicating important health information, mandate medically unnecessary procedures or outdated modes of care and much more.
In Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), physicians, hospitals and other health care providers work together to improve the quality and coordination of health care services for a population of patients.
In 2010, the year the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was signed into law, approximately 19 million women – one in five women ages 19 to 64 – were uninsured. By 2014, the ACA will provide nearly all of these women with access to comprehensive health coverage by expanding Medicaid eligibility, making private plans more affordable, and eliminating discriminatory practices that have long kept women and small businesses out of the private market.
Today, many uninsured or underinsured Americans receive their care from publicly funded clinics and health providers across the country known as essential community providers (ECPs). Many of these providers do not require insurance or any payment.
Prior to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the cost of health insurance placed a particular burden on lower-income women who needed health care services but often struggled to pay insurance premiums and the out-of-pocket costs of care.
