Dr. Sanjay Gupta: Might ObamaCare Make Americans Less Healthy?

‘Health insurance alone isn’t going to make us healthier’

CNN’s Sanjay Gupta: Will Expanding Health Insurance Make Americans Less Healthy? (Mediaite)

CNN medical reporter Sanjay Gupta appeared on the news network on Monday to offer a challenging and controversial opinion: does increasing access to health insurance make Americans less healthy? He answers, with a few caveats, yes.

When it comes to increasing the nation’s health, Gupta began by deemphasizing how critical it was for the Affordable Care Act insurance exchange website to function.

“If you look at some off the goals of health reform overall, not just health insurance reform but health reform, it was certainly about increasing access so more people had health care insurance,” Gupta asserted, “but more so, it was about trying to create a healthier America.”
