West Long Branch, N.J. – On January 25, 7:00 p.m., Lynn Petrovich, C.P.A. will give a one-hour presentation on the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA, 2010), and other relevant healthcare topics at the West Long Branch Public Library, 95 Poplar Avenue, West Long Branch.
Petrovich will examine how other countries have lower net healthcare costs, spend less taxpayer money, and provide universal coverage, resulting in healthier citizens.
“After all the debate and political grandstanding about Obama’s healthcare reform, most people don’t realize that the new healthcare law does not provide access to care for some of our most vulnerable citizens, including Vietnam veterans, Iraq war veterans, and 9/11 first responders,” said Petrovich.
“Even in a few years when the law is fully implemented, millions of Americans will remain uninsured or underinsured,” added Petrovich, who authored the book Sticker Shock, a critique of nonprofit hospital accounting practices which, Petrovich argues. rips-off unsuspecting patients with grossly inflated billing.
Petrovich is treasurer of N.J. One Plan One Nation, a coalition advocating for a universal, economical, and humane healthcare delivery system.
