Patient Protection And Affordable Care Act
Perhaps the most inspiring part of Otis Bowen’s legacy is that between 1946 and 1972 he delivered 3,000 Hoosier babies when he was the small town family physician in Bremen. The future Indiana governor would say that having his hands on so many emerging lives taught him “how to approach emer…
Last year, Hoosiers entrusted the Republican Party with some of their most precious possessions.
Today, we find ourselves at a new crossroads in the delivery of health care in the U.S. The health care industry finds itself in a state of unprecedented change.
Federal officials recently made some discouraging predictions about the future of American health care.
It’s clear that low-income, working Hoosiers without health insurance and Indiana’s economy as a whole would benefit from expanding coverage. Whether it is through the Healthy Indiana Plan or under the Medicaid provisions under health reform, we cannot wait to act.
