John Garven: The State of Healthcare Under the Affordable Care Act

July 27, 2017

John Garven, president and founder of Benico, Ltd. speaks of healthcare before and during the Affordable Care Act, the expansion of Medicaid and the failures of republican senators to repeal and replace Obamacare.

In this episode of the Heartland Daily Podcast, John Garven, president and founder of Benico, Ltd., speaks with Heartland’s director of communications Jim Lakely on the current state of healthcare in the United States.

Garven starts by describing the state of healthcare prior to the implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).  He covers the difficulties health practitioners have with the bureaucracy the ACA brought. With the expansion of Medicaid, the ACA left people with a sense of entitlement versus working for their own insurance.  Garven and Lakely go on to discuss healthcare reform, including the beneficial role health savings accounts can have in our healthcare system.
