Health policy incontrovertible truths

Sorry y’all for all the personal posts of late. I’ve had some trouble crossing the Lethe that runs between the hospital and my house (rt. 29). Forgive me, that’s the last time “death” becomes a tag in three consecutive posts.

From my policy textbook this AM, I thought I’d share:

The evidence that insurance and the access to care it facilitates improves health, particularly for vulnerable populations (due to age or chronic illness, or both) is as close to an incontrovertible truth as one can find in social science.” -Austin Frakt
