Obamacare is great, but it leaves healthcare reform unfinished, says a leading proponent of the healthcare law.
The healthcare advocacy group Families USA released a set of policy recommendations Monday it says would fill in gaps left by the Affordable Care Act — like making sure the newly-insured have access to care and improving the quality of care while lowering overall costs.
The law does a lot to expand coverage, according to the paper, but many Americans will still find it difficult to get the insurance and care they need. For instance, many low-income Americans are living in states that have rejected the law’s Medicaid expansion. And even with insurance tax credits, many people will still find premiums unaffordable.
