Insurance is a huge expense, especially if the person rarely uses it. The ACA (Affordable Care Act) and the impact on revitalizing insurance companies is another critical factor to understand. While the focus of the ACA was to improve the quality and access to care, it was likewise to reduce the cost of care. Insurance companies became one of the vehicles to bring these factors into alignment. If you understand the various pieces of the puzzle, insurance companies, hospitals, physician practices, pharmaceutical companies, and equipment vendors all play a part in the ACA being successful. Which partner do you think played the most significant part and why?
