The Price Tag for Reform: The Policy & Practice Podcast

From press conferences and events in Washington, D.C.

It was all about money on Capitol Hill last week as the Congressional Budget Office released its estimate of the 10-year cost of health reform — at least health reform as envisioned by the Senate Finance Committee. At $829 billion, the bill is expected to cover 94% of Americans. This week, we find out whether the favorable estimate will help Democrats get a final package passed.

This installment of the Policy & Practice podcast has everything you need to know about what the cost estimate means for physicians, how state Medicaid programs could fare under reform proposals, and what House Democrats have planned for their health reform bill.

Take a listen to the podcast and share your thoughts on the political wrangling.
