After Obamacare: The Future of U.S. Health Care
In early 2017, Republicans in the U.S. Senate took steps toward repealing the Affordable Care Act, while President Obama urged Congress to preserve the legislation in absence of a viable replacement plan. Although major changes to the ACA appear inevitable, there is still tremendous uncertainty about the scope and timing of those changes. This webinar, hosted by USC Annenberg’s Center for Health Journalism with support from NIHCM Foundation, explored the key questions to consider as this story evolves:
- What will happen to the 20 million newly insured through the exchanges or Medicaid expansion?
- How would high-risk pools, selling insurance across state lines, health savings accounts and block grants change who receives health coverage and at what cost?
- How and when will repeal and replace legislation unfold?
