Georgetown University Law Center Summer Program Promises Deep Dive Training on the Affordable Care Act

On behalf of the O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law at Georgetown University, I’m pleased to invite interested faculty, practitioners, students and fellow wonks to participate in our O’Neill Institute Summer Program on US Health Reform – The Affordable Care Act.

The Summer Program will be a one-week intensive from July 21-25, exploring US health care and coverage and will focus on the framework of the Affordable Care Act and the legal and policy implications of its implementation.

Speakers will be Georgetown University faculty, current and former officials from state and federal government, Congressional staff, and top health care experts. These will include Henry Aaron (Brookings Institution), Jack Ebeler (Health Policy Alternatives), Judy Feder (Georgetown McCourt School), Robert Imes (HHS), Tim Jost (Washington and Lee Law School), Karen Pollitz (Kaiser Family Foundation), Cindy Mann (CMS), Elena Lynett (Department of Labor), Julie Rovner (Kaiser Health News), Bill Schultz (HHS), and many other ACA experts.

Topics covered will include the history of health coverage programs in the U.S., ACA fundamentals, the ACA in the courts, the ACA and Medicaid, health insurance exchanges (or marketplaces), health insurance market reforms, and the ACA’s affordability programs. I’ll be co-directing the Summer Program along with colleagues Tim Westmoreland and Kevin Lucia.  Additional information about the program can be found here.

Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credit will be available as well as financial assistance to interested participants. Registrants can choose to attend the full week or select specific days.
