Opinion: California’s Role Is Vital to Reform Law’s Success
"It's not flashy, but real progress is being made in getting Californians new health care options, protections, and benefits under the [federal health reform law], and in getting California ready for the bulk of reform in 2014," Anthony Wright -- executive director of the advocacy group Health Access -- writes in a Payers & Providers opinion piece. He adds, "But this progress doesn't mean we can slow down -- it means we are building momentum as we speed up." Wright concludes, "The entire health industry in California has a stake in making [the reform law] work. We need all parts of our health care system to work to fulfill the promise of reform."
