Health shift under way
Art Wiederin spends his days sitting in the lobby of Fox Point Independent and Assisted Living in McHenry, talking to other residents, teasing staff, and watching various health professionals come and go.
At 82, Wiederin has a lot of experience with the health care system, but he hasn’t noticed any changes over the past few years as the different provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act – the federal health care reform that is sometimes fondly, and more often disparagingly, referred to as Obamacare – began to take effect.
“I’m going to say right up front that I don’t understand it all,” Wiederin said. “My whole feeling is that health care needs, from top to bottom, needs revamping. I think the system is in bad shape.”
