Still Fighting Over Health Reform: The Policy & Practice Podcast

It’s been a full year since the Affordable Care Act became law, but in many ways it feels like the debate never stopped. Last week, the Obama administration marked the one-year anniversary of the law’s signing by traveling the country to talk up the benefits of health reform. This week Congress is back from its recess and health reform is once again on the agenda for many committees.

The House Energy and Commerce Committee will look at the impact of the law on jobs and the federal budget. Later in the week, members of the House Appropriations Committee will question Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius on the implementation of the health law.

Check out this week’s edition of the Policy and Practice Podcast to hear what the public thinks about health reform and how the American Medical Association is weighing in on regulations coming out of the law.

Take a listen:

And stay tuned next week to see if lawmakers can reach agreement on a federal budget for the rest of this year and what impact it could have on health reform implementation.
