The Affordable Care Act suffered a major setback this week with the defection of Aetna from a number of state insurance exchanges, including Georgia’s.
But many people see the value of the health care law’s coverage for millions of previously uninsured Americans.
In a new GHN Commentary, former health care executive Jack Bernard, a Republican, takes on his party’s opposition to the ACA, while explaining what he sees as its flaws.
“It is much better than what we had before, regarding health care access and coverage,’’ he writes. “I agree with our state GOP leaders that the ACA is imperfect, but it is what we have in the short term to provide coverage to the uninsured.”
