The ACA is the only option [Commentary]
The bungled roll-out of the website used by Americans who want to enroll in the new Health Insurance Marketplaces under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) has obscured the fundamental reasons why the U.S. must make health reform work: a vital component of a modern economy is comprehensive, affordable, and portable health coverage. These marketplaces, coupled with ACA insurance market reforms, can meet this need through subsidies, benefit guarantees and the assurance that workers can take their coverage with them when they changes jobs or lose a job.
