A Primer on the US Healthcare Industry and the Affordable Care Act’s Role in It

The primer can be found here.

As for additions to this primer, I would say that complete price transparency can eventually set the path for an all-payer system. It would also stop the rent seeking and price racketeering prevalent throughout the entire supply chain of US health care.

That said, I maintain that single payer is the best option (albeit the least politically feasible). Having everyone enrolled under a single plan creates the best risk pool there is!
