Unbiased Analysis of Today's Healthcare Issues

A HWR fit for a King

Written By: Jason Shafrin - May• 08•14

With the NBA playoffs are upon us, the Healthcare Economist reached out to some NBA stars to see what they like to do in their spare time. LeBron James returned my call and after a lengthly discussion, I learned that he loves to read the Health Wonk Review (HWR). In fact, his favorite topics are:

  • Affordable Care Act
  • Health Insurance and mortality
  • Hospitals
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Policy
  • Privacy

To honor his request, this edition of the HWR covers exactly those topics.


Without further ado…

Affordable Care Act

Health insurance and mortality
