BRI invites you to register for a scheduled tour of the Mercy Virtual Care Center. The care center is the world’s first telemedicine only institute. Telemedicine is one of the future […]
To be fair, the conference was titled “…Health Law Year in P/Review.” Given our lack of market influence in healthcare prior to the ACA, and even less of it now, a review of the past year and a preview of the current year should not involve a discussion of the actual root causes of our healthcare system’s issues. Sarcasm aside, these are issues that people must begin having serious discussions about. Rather than accepting the status quo and searching only for top down approaches to regulating healthcare, a critical analysis as to the cause of rising prices and lack of access should be undertaken, after which thoughtful policies aimed at mitigating costs could actually be implemented. We need people to have access to care, not insurance. Perhaps Abigail Moncrieff was correct in asserting that Obamacare has anchored what is acceptable as policy, and perhaps this itself is the problem.
NOTE: This event takes place in the eastern time zone.
