Patient Protection And Affordable Care Act
Mary-Beth Ferrebee's letter is so off the mark it is ridiculous. The Affordable Care Act is basically GOP Romneycare. Of course President Barack Obama read it before signing it.
The policy debate over whether Indiana should create a state-managed health insurance exchange or to continue to rely on a federal exchange is a decision for our Legislature.
Indiana physicians will love the expanded Healthy Indiana Plan. Here’s why: Long before Washington gave us the Affordable Care Act, Indiana played a pioneering role in another well-established health care reform movement, consumer-directed health care.

Medicare isn’t eligible for AARP membership yet, but at 49, it’s looking pretty darn good. Many Hoosiers seem to agree. More than 1 million Indiana residents use the program, and 98 percent of eligible Hoosier seniors were enrolled in Medicare in 2011.
As election season approaches, I’ve been pondering a crucial issue about the role of government in our society. It’s that our government often fails — and that we need to address this.

Indiana has struggled to recover from the Great Recession.
Being sick is undeniably stressful, and being sick without health coverage is even more so. For the 13 percent of Hoosiers ages 50 to 64 — about 172,000 people — who were uninsured in 2011, I have a message for you: Please don’t miss the March 31 deadline to buy coverage through the Health I…
