On March 7th, Kathleen Sebelius of Health and Human Services announced that there has been a slowdown in medical spending since the implementation of the Affordable Care Act.
Obamacare, Sebelius said, is due the credit for increased efficiency and slowed medical spending growth.
“The health care law’s push for coordinated care and paying for quality rather than quantity is putting downward pressure on medical costs, the article reports,” Sebelius wrote in a blog post. “It’s improving the way health care providers do business, and that’s good news for patients.”
Sebelius cited a USA Today study that found the ACA’s cost-control measures are working.
