Default (The Actuary magazine) Commercial health care - what's next? (ACA/AHCA)

A few months ago, I was fortunate enough to be asked by Dave Dillon to join a great group of health actuaries in a work group where we would focus on some of the more important aspects of the ACA (Obamacare) and the AHCA (Trumpcare).

I'm pleased to say that our efforts are now "live" (and will continue with articles over the next few months):

http://www.theactuarymagazine.org/ca...re-whats-next/

The articles are intended to be at the audience of a general actuary (so if you're an ACA expert, they may be considered light reading with some excitement thrown in).

Enjoy!

I'm also excited that Hans Leida, Erica Rode, T.J. Gray and I have the first article out of the chute, on the impact of demographic pricing restrictions on commercial health care markets:

http://www.theactuarymagazine.org/th...the-beautiful/

The title ("The Old and the Beautiful") is a callback to a 2011 article that Mary van der Heijde and I wrote on a similar topic, "The Young are the Restless".

Hopefully you find it interesting.

I'll echo the good doctor's recommendation, and also add that those who are monitoring the issues closely should also follow Dave's LinkedIn activity for updates and perspective on the current hot topics.

Looks like they're going the "interactive graphics" route, and seems it may be javascript

I bet MPC's right (although I haven't looked under the hood to verify JS specifically).

The graphs are interactive (and pretty neat, I think).

Two more articles in the series - one while I was out on leave, and one this past few days:

Liz Leif and Cecil Bykerk look at high risk pools as a potential solution:
http://www.theactuarymagazine.org/ne...igh-risk-pool/

Trey Swacker looks at how healthcare reform could impact small employers:

There's plenty of JS/Jquery there. Being a novice, I'm actually finding it hard to dig up the code for the graphs themselves (there are a lot of links to dig through), but since the page is bringing in both d3 and c3, we'd be safe putting money on them being the driving force behind the charts & graphs.
