One of the challenges is the issue about what network is available to the individual.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 21, 2014
Dr. Karen Minyard, Executive Director at Georgia Health Policy Center, spoke about the Affordable Care Act on the April 3, 2014 episode of The Doctors Roundtable with host Tanya Mack of HealthGate. Dr. Minyard came on the show to explain and answer questions about this newly implemented law.
The Affordable Care Act has caused confusion since it went into effect October 1, 2013. The new law is expected to significantly decrease the number of Americans without health insurance; however, there are still many questions surrounding the cost of health insurance, if one can keep his or her own doctor, etc. Dr. Minyard joined host Tanya Mack to address some of these questions.
“One of the challenges is the issue about what network is available to the individual,” said Dr. Minyard. “Many plans have narrow networks, so provider choice is limited. I advise people to pay attention to this when they sign up.”
Dr. Minyard is a translator of National Health Care Reform, has had 13 years of experience in nursing and hospital administration, and has been at the Georgia Health Policy Center for 19 years. She is a Board Member of both the National Network of Public Health Initiatives and the Physician’s Innovation Network.
