A recent article in the New York Times indicated that improving access to healthcare through the ACA isn't saving money or reducing costs. The article states, "A review of preventive measures in the New England Journal of Medicine found that less than 20 percent of 279 preventive measures saved money. The rest resulted in varying amounts of increased spending." Further, the article says that "Sometimes good things cost money."
Do you agree with this statement that good things sometimes cost money? Is increased access a way to reduce costs by eliminating more urgent care needs?
