You need to beware of other websites posing as marketplace look-a-likes. The policies may be real, but they won't necessarily be the same plans available through your state's marketplace, and you may be passing up a chance at getting a better deal and financial help with your premiums or out-of-pocket costs.
For you startup founders and benefits administrators, here's the good news: you have options. In this brave new world of defined contributions, private exchanges and the individual mandate, there are plenty of ways for you and your employees to get good coverage at an affordable price.
The ACA actually does make it possible for people to keep their coverage -- unless the insurance company decides to stop offering it.
Given what we know about depression, mental illness, and the potential economic vitality of a healthy, active aging population, there is one solution that can "move the needle": the age-friendly workplace.
Health care is going through a process of re-grounding itself in patient-centric care. All rhetoric aside, we have to enable multidisciplinary teams w...
Frankly, it's not so much nuance as it is putting a priority on getting the facts right. At the outset I asked why didn't CNN get the facts right. Given that their ratings remain in the tank despite new leadership, that question may not matter much longer.
As for the Obama-hugging Christie, who continues to thumb his nose at the crazies in his purview, I can hardly wait to see him at the 2016 debates squaring off against what is sure to be a crop of deranged opponents.
As the week began, another "Obamacare" horror story hit the press, instigating a fleet of outrage-pornographers to continue self-flagellating and screeching about the disastrous Affordable Care Act -- selectively forgetting about actual healthcare horror stories that existed before the law was implemented.

There's a difference between government allowing certain actions with which we might disagree on moral grounds... as opposed to compelling them. That is the fine line that is religious liberty.
If I hadn't had superior health insurance, I would have died many years ago--a life cut short by a lack of access to health care. It makes me angry that millions of Americans cannot not share my good fortune.
