Eric Borgerding, CEO and president of the Wisconsin Hospital Association, says any replacement for the Affordable Care Act coming down the pipe must fairly reflect Wisconsin’s health care improvements.
“Here we are again on the brink of upheaval in health care,” Borgerding told WisBusiness.com. “When that happens remains to be seen. What is certain is uncertainty.”
He says the health care conversation in 2017 will be dominated by what happens to the ACA — what goes away, what is replaced, how it is replaced, and when this will all occur. Since it passed in 2010, health care has been “realigning and redirecting resources” to deal with the shifting landscape, he says.
“Our members want first and foremost to know what is coming, to know what will change, so they can adapt and they can be positioned,” Borgerding said.
