Republican gubernatorial candidate Bob Beauprez doubled down on his total and complete opposition to Obamacare last week, saying the law's core plan to expand healthcare coverage under Medicaid is a path to "ruin."
How much will health insurance premiums go up next year? The short answer: We won't know for several months.
When the Supreme Court voted to give an "exception" to businesses who say they have religious conflicts over aspects of the Affordable Care Act, it pretty much pulled away the curtain that only-just-barely kept the public from seeing those five men operating the big giant head of Oz.
It was inconceivable -- pun intended -- to me that the U.S. Supreme Court, by a vote of five of its male justices, would place access to birth control coverage for thousands of women in jeopardy.
Just when we thought the rights of women, workers and minorities faced enough setbacks, it appears the nation's highest court has done it once again. The Supreme Court's majority has very clearly shown where its interests are -- and they are not with the people.
Two things are absolutely clear about this Supreme Court term. One, it's once again been a very good term for the Chamber of Commerce. And, two, it's been an even better one for the business community writ large.

An administrative process may not be as riveting as a Larry Kramer play or a massive AIDS protest, but anyone who cares about health care and access to treatment for those living with HIV and AIDS should be watching this case closely.
A year-long investigation by the Center for Public Integrity has revealed that health insurers may have fleeced taxpayers out of $70 billion in just five years.
For the past 100 years, the American Cancer Society (ACS) has been helping promote the best science to help control cancer. In support of that goal, t...
I cower when I see the email from our health insurance broker, cheerfully writing to schedule our annual plan review and a discussion of the increase for the coming year. I say increase because we have never seen a decrease in 10 years.
