On Knowledge@Wharton and in a Penn Today article, PSC Associate Mark V. Pauly discusses the future of the Affordable Care Act, which is being reviewed by the courts. “I will be heartsick if it’s declared unconstitutional,” says Pauly. “My view is that you should be required to have health insurance just like you’re required to wear clothes in cold weather.”
On the Knowledge@Wharton, Mark V. Pauly, of PSC & PARC, and Genevieve Kanter of the Perelman School of Medicine discuss the impact of changes to the Stark Law, which prevents doctors from self-referral, and the effectiveness of accountable care organizations (ACO).“I would be even more enthusiastic about ACOs if it had been shown that they actually improve the coordination of care,” says Kanter.
