More coverage requires more doctors, my take in The New York Times

I was invited by The New York Times’ Room for Debate Blog to give my reaction to President Obama’s health care remarks during his speech to Congress last night.

My piece, More coverage requires more doctors, warns the President that we should heed the lessons from Massachusetts’ health reform experiment.

Universal coverage must go hand in hand with providing better health care access, or else millions of newly insured patients will find themselves going to the emergency room, which paradoxically, will further drive up costs.

Thanks to The New York Times for the opportunity to contribute, and I hope you enjoy the piece.
