Health Affairs Podcast Delivers Lively Debate over ACA Implementation and the Prognosis for Reform

 

Health Affairs has aired the fifth installment of its Health Affairs Conversations series yesterday afternoon, hosted by Chris Fleming of Health Affairs and featuring CHIR’s Sabrina Corlette and Robert Laszewski, President of Health Policy and Strategy Associates. This latest podcast covers the roll out of the Affordable Care Act, policy cancellations and the transition to a reformed health insurance marketplace.

Bob Laszewski and Sabrina Corlette were able to agree on one thing: the roll out of Healthcare.gov has been plagued with problems more severe and systemic than mere “glitches.” But that was just about all they could agree on, as they engaged in a lively debate over the impact of ending discrimination against people with pre-existing conditions, the relative success of state-based vs. federally facilitated exchanges, and the long-term prognosis for health care reform.
