Health care is improving in Michigan. Here’s why

|

Health care remains of top concern for voters nationwide heading into the November election. Indeed, the U.S. Senate confirmation process for Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court was ripe with questions about how she might address cases challenging the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act.

Meanwhile, on the campaign trail, both presidential candidates are making their health care case, with Joe Biden promising to build on the law and President Donald Trump promising to fix what’s broken.

This issue matters a lot to Michigan families. Any discussion of it should start with a simple analysis of what can be done at the federal level and what states can also do that could have meaningful, positive impact for patients across the states. Because what we do know is that Obamacare has not been the cure-all for America’s health care woes.
