Health Care Quality

Health care quality is commonly defined as the right care at the right time in the right setting. While Georgia boasts many providers and health systems that provide superb care, many of the quality and outcome indicators for our state illustrate the need for overall improvement. In addition, forces such as consolidation (both on the hospital and health system side and on the part of insurers) and new models of care delivery mean that consumer advocacy is particularly timely and important. Georgians for a Healthy Future monitors policy changes that can impact quality of care for consumers and weighs in on behalf of consumers.

The newest version of the ACA repeal bill still strips health care away from 560,000 Georgians, raises premiums in Georgia by an average of $3000+, and cuts our state's Medicaid program by $4 billion. There's new stuff in the bill too! Now it guts protections for people with pre-existing conditions, ends national standards on what health care services insurers have to cover, and ends the nation wide ban on annual & lifetime benefit caps.
