It wasn't easy to find a "just the facts" rendering of the USSC ruling last week on the constitutionality of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Probably because it is much easier to write or broadcast a "just my interpretation based on my political leanings and life perception" story. If you have the time and information-seeking wherewithal, go to http://www.supremecourt.gov/ to read the entire ruling with all the justices' opinions. Perceive and interpret for yourself. Remember to search for the actual case called NATIONAL FEDERATION OF INDEPENDENT BUSINESS et al v. SEBELIUS, SECRETARY OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES et al.
Meanwhile, we at Rise Health are also appreciating Abraham Whaley of ManageMyPractice.com for writing out a "what it means" column. Just like Abe, we like to keep our posts informative and actionable, not political. We publish his post here, directing you to the link below.Healthcare Reform: Talking to Patients and Staff | Manage My Practice.com
