Affordable care act

Today is a big day for healthcare reform, but just how big? Only time will tell.

Here are the news and insight sources we’ll be following for up-to-the-minute developments, so you can follow them too.


Kaiser Health News – Often the very first stop on the morning Internet rounds checking up on what’s new in healthcare reform since we went to sleep the previous night.

The Washington Post, Wonkblog – Healthcare reform junkies know Sarah Kliff’s in-depth but still accessible daily entries are essential if you want to follow the often convoluted debate trajectories.

TIME, Swampland – Political insights into real-time developments straight from DC.

BloombergBusinessweek, Politics and Policy vertical – covers everything from legislation quibbles to creepy anti-ACA ad campaigns to opinion pieces from insight leaders.

Politico44 – the “living diary” of Barack Obama’s presidency will surely be ablaze with updates as the eponymous policy rolls out. And while you’re there, check out Politico Pulse, their weekday-morning update section on health policy.

Reuters, David Morgan – Morgan will be Reuters’ designated ACA beat correspondent for the foreseeable future – just try and find a recent headline of his without the word “Obamacare” in it.

National Journal, health care vertical -  a well-staffed department dedicated to covering healthcare reform and policy.
