The ACA is 6 years old today.
It is potty trained, knows the alphabet and it is starting to use phonics as the 100th day of Kindergarten has passed.
Is the ACA the epitome and capstone of health care and health finance reform? No!
Is it a massive improvement over the pre-ACA status-quo where the entire system was slowly death spiraling? Yes!
Are there massive changes to service delivery that are going on underneath the radar that have and will continue to alter the US healthcare delivery sector with an aim to better quality at the same or lower costs? Yes!
Is this worth celebrating for a day? Yes
Tomorrow should we get back to work to making things a bit better wherever we have the ability to do so? Yes.
