Nothing brightens our Twitter feeds like a few good health policy valentines ― except maybe a haiku or two. Tweeters showered us with love this season, writing poetic valentines about covid-19 testing and booster shots, the No Surprises Act, and more. Here are some of our favorites, starting with the winning tweet from @AlanJCard.

Whether a narrow-network plan, or exclusively dating,If you go out-of-network, you’ll need arbitrating.#HealthPolicyValentines
