This week’s episode featured two powerhouse guests. First, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, Former Senior White House Health Policy Adviser and Current Chair of the Department of Medical Ethics and Health Policy at the University of Pennsylvania, discusses his reaction to the Supreme Court Ruling, particularly the Medicaid Expansion. His commentary also includes thoughts on how to reform the delivery system to provide coordinated quality care and strategies to mange chronic diseases.
Interested in free market solutions? Our second guest, Dave Merritt, Senior Policy Adviser at Leavitt and Associates and former top policy staff person to Newt Gingrich, joined the program offering some of his own take on ideas Republicans may try should they take back control of Congress and the White House. Can republicans win? He offers his prediction on how he thinks the election may play out in November.
Finally, the good doctor Harris Frankel and I take your calls, and discuss areas of un-necessary costs that will need to be addressed going forward. For all of the latest information on the Affordable Care Act, check out the podcast of America’s Healthcare Challenge Part Four.
