Bryce A. Williams, JD Biography

Title:
President and Chief Executive Officer at Extend Health Inc.
Position:
Con to the question "Is the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) Good for America?"
Reasoning:

“The landmark health care reform legislation passed in March 2010 will enable small businesses, the self-employed and the uninsured to choose health insurance plans offered through state-run exchanges, beginning in 2014…

Exchanges for individuals point to a future where employers can offer their employees more choices in health plans…

There is mounting evidence that well-run exchanges can offer three things that are rare in our health care system: personalization, choice and competition.”
