     Health Care Reform and American Politics: What Everyone Needs to Know
Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA
Author(s): Lawrence R. Jacobs, Theda Skocpol

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act signed by President Obama in March 2010 is a landmark in U.S. social legislation. The new law extends health insurance to nearly all Americans, fulfilling a century-long quest and bringing the United States to parity with other industrial nations. Affordable Care aims to control rapidly rising health care costs and promises to make the United States more equal, reversing four decades of rising disparities between the very rich and everyone else. Millions of people of modest means will gain new benefits and protections from insurance company abuses - and the tab will be paid by privileged corporations and the very rich.

How did such a bold reform effort pass in a polity wracked by partisan divisions and intense lobbying by special interests? What does Affordable Care mean - and what comes next? In Health Care Reform and American Politics: What Everyone Needs to Know, Lawrence R. Jacobs and Theda Skocpol--two of the nation's leading experts on politics and health care policy--provide a concise and accessible overview. They explain the political battles of 2009 and 2010, highlighting White House strategies, the deals Democrats cut with interest groups, and the impact of agitation by Tea Partiers and progressives. Jacobs and Skocpol spell out what the new law can do for everyday Americans, what it will cost, and who will pay. Above all, they explain what comes next, as critical yet often behind-the-scenes battles rage over implementing reform nationally and in the fifty states. Affordable Care might end up being weakened. But, like Social Security and Medicare, it could also gain strength and popularity as the majority of Americans learn what it can do for them.

     The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act
Publisher: Health Care
Author(s): Barack Obama, 111th Congress of the United States

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Public Law 111-148) was signed into law in the United States by President Barack Obama on March 23, 2010. Along with the proposed Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010, the Act is a product of the health care reform agenda of the Democratic 111th Congress and the Obama administration.

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act passed the Senate on December 24, 2009, by a vote of 60?39 and passed the House of Representatives on March 21, 2010, by a vote of 219?212, with no Republicans in either house voting for the bill. At the time of the vote, there were four vacancies in the House.

The bill was originally drafted by the Senate as an alternative to the Affordable Health Care for America Act, which was passed by the House two months earlier on November 7. However, after the Democrats lost their supermajority in the Senate on January 19, 2010, the House decided to pass the Senate version and amend it with a third bill.

     Landmark: The Inside Story of America's New Health Care Law and What It Means for Us All (Publicaffairs Reports)
Publisher: PublicAffairs
Author(s): Staff of the Washington Post

The Washington Post?s must-read guide to the health care overhaul

What now? Despite the rancorous, divisive, year-long debate in Washington, many Americans still don?t understand what the historic overhaul of the health care system will?or won?t?mean. In Landmark, the national reporting staff of The Washington Post pierces through the confusion, examining the new law?s likely impact on us all: our families, doctors, hospitals, health care providers, insurers, and other parts of a health care system that has grown to occupy one-sixth of the U.S. economy.

Landmark?s behind-the-scenes narrative reveals how just how close the law came to defeat, as well as the compromises and deals that President Obama and his Democratic majority in Congress made in achieving what has eluded their predecessors for the past seventy-five years: A legislative package that expands and transforms American health care coverage.

Landmark is an invaluable resource for anyone eager to understand the changes coming our way.

     Understanding Health Care Reform: Bridging the Gap Between Myth and Reality
Publisher: Productivity Press
Author(s): Arthur M. Feldman MD PhD

After nearly a year of debate, in March 2010, Congress passed and the president signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act to reform the U.S. health care system. The most significant social legislation since the civil rights legislation and the creation of Medicare and Medicaid, the bill?s passage has been met with great controversy. Political pundits, politicians, health care economists, and policy analysts have filled the airwaves and the lay press with their opinions, but little has been heard from those who have the most invested in health care delivery reform?patients and their doctors.

Understanding Health Care Reform: Bridging the Gap Between Myth and Reality provides readers with the information to make informed decisions and to help counter the bias of political pundits and the influence of the for-profit health care industry. The author introduces readers to a group of dedicated doctors, administrators, and patients whose experiences illustrate the strengths and weaknesses of the health care reform legislation. He also shares his own experiences as both a physician and a patient. The book puts the health care reform legislation in perspective by exploring ten critical areas:

  • The private insurance industry
  • Medicare and Medicaid
  • The elimination of waste caused by overutilization, high administrative fees, and fraud
  • Disease prevention and wellness programs
  • Care for the underserved?the health care "safety net"
  • Quality of care
  • The impending workforce shortage
  • Comparative-effectiveness research to compare treatments
  • Changes in the way medicine is practiced
  • Tort reform

Describing the reform act as the foundation and framing of a house, it outlines what doctors, patients, and families must focus on as states, the federal government, and the courts craft this legislation over time. The author cuts through the political rhetoric to address the core question: how do we preserve our ability to provide the best possible care for patients and fulfill our societal mission of providing care for our citizens independent of their financial means? Focusing on strengths and weaknesses, rather than what is right or wrong, he encourages readers to think creatively about their role in establishing a better system of health care in America.

     Inside National Health Reform (California/Milbank Books on Health and the Public)
Publisher: University of California Press

This indispensable guide to the Affordable Care Act, our new national health care law, lends an insider's deep understanding of policy to a lively and absorbing account of the extraordinary--and extraordinarily ambitious--legislative effort to reform the nation's health care system. Dr. John E. McDonough, DPH, a health policy expert who served as an advisor to the late Senator Edward Kennedy, provides a vivid picture of the intense effort required to bring this legislation into law. McDonough clearly explains the ACA's inner workings, revealing the rich landscape of the issues, policies, and controversies embedded in the law yet unknown to most Americans.

At a time when the nation is taking a second look at the ACA, Inside National Health Reform provides the essential information for Americans to make informed judgments about this landmark law.

     Ultimate Guide to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA or ACA) - Understanding Obamacare and Your Health Care Insurance Options, New Plans, Programs, Bill of Rights, Full Text of Law
Publisher: Progressive Management
Author(s): U.S. Government, Department of Health and Human Services

This important and up-to-date e-book provides a complete guide to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), signed by President Barack Obama in March 2010, with the equivalent of over 1500 pages of material. There is coverage of all facets of this vital new law, with full reproductions of implementing regulations and language; top things to know; improvements available now and in the near future, as well as by 2014; patient bill of rights; small employer tax credits; Medicare donut hole rebate; pre-existing condition plans and high-risk pools; parents coverage for children up to age 26; Medicaid and subsidies; Office of Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight (OCIIO); health disparities and preventive care coverage; information technology and electronic medical records (electronic health records, EHR); community health centers; insurance options for individuals, families with children, people with disabilities, young adults, and employers; the full text of the law; regulations; authorities; implementation plans; CHIP and programs for children; information about long-term care; and much more. President Obama signed into law the Affordable Care Act. The law puts into place comprehensive health insurance reforms that will hold insurance companies more accountable and will lower health care costs, guarantee more health care choices, and enhance the quality of health care of all Americans. The Act will not be implemented all at once. Portions of the law have already taken effect. Other changes will be implemented through 2014 and beyond. Here's what the government says about the options in the law: The Affordable Care Act is giving you more control over your family s health care by expanding your options for health insurance and making them more affordable. Starting as early as 2010, job-based health plans and new individual plans won t be allowed to deny or exclude coverage for your children (under age 19) based on a pre-existing condition including a disability. Starting in 2014, these same plans won't be allowed to deny or exclude anyone or charge more for a pre-existing condition including a disability. Starting as early as September 2010, if you have children under age 26, you can generally insure them if your policy allows for dependent coverage. The only exception is if you have an existing job-based plan, and your children can get their own job-based coverage. In some plans, you can add your young adult children even earlier than September 2010. Starting as early as 2010, insurance companies won t be able to drop you when you get sick just because you made a mistake on your coverage application. Starting in 2014, if your income is less than the equivalent of about $88,000 for a family of four today, and your job doesn t offer affordable coverage, you may get tax credits to help pay for insurance. Starting in 2014, pregnancy and newborn care, along with vision and dental coverage for children, will be covered in all Exchange plans and new plans sold to individuals and small businesses. An Exchange is a new marketplace where individuals and small businesses can buy affordable health benefit plans. Exchanges will offer you a choice of plans that meet certain benefits and cost standards. Starting in 2014, Members of Congress will be getting their health care insurance through Exchanges, and you will be able buy your insurance through Exchanges, too.

     Remedy and Reaction: The Peculiar American Struggle over Health Care Reform
Publisher: Yale University Press
Author(s): Paul Starr

In no other country has health care served as such a volatile flashpoint of ideological conflict. America has endured a century of rancorous debate on health insurance, and despite the passage of legislation in 2010, the battle is not yet over. This book is a history of how and why the United States became so stubbornly different in health care, presented by an expert with unsurpassed knowledge of the issues.

Tracing health-care reform from its beginnings to its current uncertain prospects, Paul Starr argues that the United States ensnared itself in a trap through policies that satisfied enough of the public and so enriched the health-care industry as to make the system difficult to change.

He reveals the inside story of the rise and fall of the Clinton health plan in the early 1990s?and of the Gingrich counterrevolution that followed. And he explains the curious tale of how Mitt Romney?s reforms in Massachusetts became a model for Democrats and then follows both the passage of those reforms under Obama and the explosive reaction they elicited from conservatives. Writing concisely and with an even hand, the author offers exactly what is needed as the debate continues?a penetrating account of how health care became such treacherous terrain in American politics.

     The Future of Health-Care Delivery: Why It Must Change and How It Will Affect You
Publisher: Potomac Books Inc.
Author(s): Stephen C. Schimpff MD

Approximately 100,000 deaths per year in the United States result from preventable medical errors. This figure is about twice the number of people who die in car accidents and five times the number of murder victims annually, and twenty times the number of servicemen and women killed in Iraq and Afghanistan since the start of hostilities in 2001. If you think Americans have the best health-care system in the world, think again.

In this deeply researched and controversial book, Dr. Stephen Schimpff explains why our health-care delivery system serves us so poorly, why it costs so much, and why government policy over many decades has not only failed to improve care delivery but has actually made it worse. In the process, he dispels common misconceptions about medicine and health care. The Future of Health-Care Delivery provides timely information and a road map to achieve world-class care delivery, putting health care where it belongs?in the hands of the patient and medical professionals instead of the insurance companies and government.

     The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Health Care Law Series)
Publisher: LandMark Publications
Author(s): LandMark Publications

This casebook contains 24 federal court of appeals decisions that address issues raised by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (PPACA).

The PPACA contains five essential components designed to improve access to the health care and health insurance markets, reduce the escalating costs of health care, and minimize cost-shifting.

First, the Act builds upon the existing nationwide system of employer-based health insurance. It establishes tax incentives for small businesses to purchase health insurance for their employees, 26 U.S.C. � 45R, and requires certain large employers to offer health insurance to their employees, id. � 4980H.

Second, the Act provides for the creation of state-operated "health benefit exchanges." These exchanges allow individuals and small businesses to leverage their collective buying power to obtain price-competitive health insurance. 42 U.S.C. � 18031.

Third, the Act expands federal programs to assist the poor with obtaining health insurance. For eligible individuals who purchase insurance through an exchange, the Act offers federal tax credits for payment of health insurance premiums, 26 U.S.C. � 36B, and authorizes federal payments to help cover out-of-pocket expenses, 42 U.S.C. � 18071. The Act also expands eligibility for Medicaid. Id. � 1396a(a)(10)(A)(i)(VIII).

Fourth, the Act bars certain practices in the insurance industry that have prevented individuals from obtaining and maintaining health insurance. The guaranteed issue requirement bars insurance companies from denying coverage to individuals with preexisting conditions, id. �� 300gg-1(a), 300gg-3(a), and the community rating requirement prohibits insurance companies from charging higher rates to individuals based on their medical history, id. � 300gg.

Finally, the Act's "Requirement to Maintain Minimum Essential Coverage," 26 U.S.C. � 5000A, takes effect in 2014 and requires every "applicable individual" to obtain "minimum essential coverage" for each month.

     The Battle Over Health Care: What Obama's Reform Means for America's Future
Publisher: Rowman & Littlefield Publishers
Author(s): Rosemary Gibson, Janardan Prasad Singh

As the most substantial health care reform in almost half a century, President Obama's health care overhaul was as historic as it was divisive. In its aftermath, the debate continues.

Drawing on decades of experience in health care policy, health care delivery reform, and economics, Rosemary Gibson and Janardan Prasad Singh provide a non-partisan analysis of the reform and what it means for America and the its future. The authors shine a light on truths that have been hidden behind a raucous debate marred by political correctness on both sides of the aisle. They show how health care reform was enacted only with the consent of health insurance companies, drug firms, device manufacturers, hospitals, and other special interests that comprise the medical-industrial complex, which gained millions of new customers with the stroke of a pen. Health care businesses in a market-oriented system are designed to generate revenue, which runs counter to affordable health care.

Gibson and Singh take a broader perspective on health care reform not as a single issue but as part of the economic life of the nation. The national debate unfolded while the banking and financial system teetered on the brink of collapse. The authors trace uncanny similarities between the health care industry and the unfettered banking and financial sector. They argue that a fast-changing global economy will have profound implications for the country's economic security and the jobs and health care benefits that come with it, and they predict that global competition will shape the future of employer-provided insurance more than the health care reform law.
