24 Jun When Politics & Reality Collide
There is a fantastic article in the New York Times today that discusses Harvard Professors’ reactions to changes in their health insurance plan.
As the article points out, these are the same professors that were all in favor of the Affordable Care Act.
This is a great example of one of the reasons why our medical delivery system is broken. There is such a discrepancy between the political rhetoric and the actual concrete realities of the system, that until EVERYONE realizes that the current system is unsustainable and everyone is going to have to give up something dear to them, we will only marginally patch the current system and continue to leave our most vulnerable citizens without the safety net we should all enjoy.
The best part for me, is looking at the changes Harvard is making to their plan. The majority of my clients would love to have a plan this rich in benefits.
