In a recent presentation by Jeffrey W. Ross, MD, Founder and CEO of Vailshire Capital Management, LLC, the effects of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) on the healthcare system were discussed, along with the challenges and potential solutions for the future. The ACA introduced several changes, such as requiring all Americans to be insured and adding healthy individuals to the general insurance pool.
The addition of healthy individuals into the healthcare system was beneficial for insurance companies, as their profits soared. However, this presented challenges for individual doctors, who saw their salaries stagnate or decrease. Insurance companies have a significant advantage in patient pre-approvals and contract negotiations, leading to physician discontent.
