The Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare (sometimes among its detractors), will have a series of wonderful effects on the economics of medical care in the United States. Many people have already signed up for Obamacare and are impressed with the level of service they have received. With more people insured, there will be more money in the medical system.
The affordable care act is wrecking health care. It will eventually lead to socialized medicine complete run by and paid for by the federal government. More and more doctors are trying to opt out by become concierge doctors are refusing to take new patients. Younger healthy people aren't buying into it, only the older and sickly.
The Affordable Care Act will not have a positive effect on the business of health, and this is a good thing. I think there is something wrong with the very idea of 'the business of health'. Health should be an objective not a business, at least not primarily a business. The Affordable care act will make the population healthier. A healthier population isn't good for 'the business of health' in the same way a sick population is.
I do not believe the Affordable Care Act will have what is viewed as a positive impact on the business of health. I think the act will eventually work to decrease costs in the health care field and will more than likely reduce wages in the field as well. While these changes will benefit a lot of people in the long run, it is unlikely that they will be viewed in a positive manner, especially by those in the field.
