Address the short­falls in the ACA, but don’t re­peal it and cause chaos

Modern Healthcare - - COMMENT -

Re­gard­ing the ar­ti­cle: “In­com­ing Congress im­me­di­ately will pick up Oba­macare re­peal,” (Modernhealth­, Dec. 27). So, we strug­gle to train and adapt to new pro­ce­dures, in­vest in costly sys­tems, and sac­ri­fice to get at least ba­sic cov­er­age to most peo­ple, al­low­ing providers to fi­nally get paid some­thing for treat­ing these peo­ple who were pre­vi­ously unin­sured, and now you (Congress) want to de­stroy the only sys­tem we have with noth­ing to re­place it with be­cause you don’t like Pres­i­dent Barack Obama?

Is there a rea­son you can’t address the short­falls of the Af­ford­able Care Act one at a time with­out throw­ing the in­dus­try into com­plete chaos?
