While the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was being debated in the beginning, the primary question was asked, “How do we cover more Americans and reduce the number of uninsured?” The answer to that question would become what we know as the ACA.

Perhaps the initial question was a little short sighted, I mean, getting people covered by health insurance isn’t the end result we were looking for right? We want people to have access to the care and medicines that they need! With that in mind, here are three questions that need to be considered as we take a look at Obamacare in 2017.
