This election season has seen relatively little campaigning on health care reform. Short of the occasional cry to "repeal Obamacare" or the offhand complaint about how much health care costs, there's been relatively little focus on how reform, of health care in general, must be addressed in the next Presidential administration.

What little news there is seems to focus on the exchanges, as I've noted over at other venues. Almost no attention is being paid to Medicaid, or its expansion as part of the Affordable Care Act. A newly released study in JAMA focuses on how the Medicaid expansion affected hospital finances in the US, though, and it's worth our time. This is Healthcare Triage News.
