Affordable Care Act (ACA) Survives Repeal Vote

Obamacare Survives…for now

News broke last Friday that the House Republicans have failed to garner enough votes to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

I don’t personally benefit from the ACA since I get my coverage directly from my employer plan.  However, I am a firm believer that everyone has the right to healthcare coverage.  Any one of us is merely a job away from not having health insurance. I don’t believe that anyone should potentially get into financial ruin due to illness simply because they don’t have affordable healthcare options.

I used to worked at a revenue cycle healthcare management company for some years, so I know full well the complexities of healthcare systems. While I am relieved that the repeal failed, I also know that Obamacare isn’t perfect.  I hope politicians work to improve it instead.
