Dr. Gerald Kominski, professor of health policy and management and director of FSPH's UCLA Center for Health Policy Research, was quoted May 3 by Politifact in an article about parents of children who have pre-existing conditions and remain eligible for insurance under the Affordable Care Act.
With millions more people insured through the Affordable Care Act, the uncompensated care problem has fallen to its lowest level in decades.
"The parents might have annual or lifetime limits on benefits, and might exceed those limits rapidly with a seriously ill child, so they’d run out of benefits legally," Kominski said.
