Editor’s Note: It’s been more than five years since the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was officially signed into law, and just over two years since most of the law’s major provisions took effect. Healthcare reform has been a polarizing topic for far longer than that, and it still continues to be a point of contention in our country today, with some calling for its total repeal, others praising its effectiveness and even others fighting against it in the court system. While its future remains unclear, we are seeing significant and long-term changes in healthcare. And that change will continue to affect us as healthcare professionals.
In response to the importance of healthcare reform to us as Christian healthcare professionals, Today’s Christian Doctor asked Dr. Albers to take an in-depth look at ACA’s status from a variety of perspectives. The views expressed in this article are the author’s, as CMDA does not have an official position on ACA. CMDA has addressed how some parts of the law clash with principles supported in CMDA’s biblically-based ethics statements, including right of conscience and abortion. Whether you support ACA or disagree with it, we hope this article will serve as a resource for you as you face how the law is affecting you, your practice and healthcare as a whole.
