Improved Health at a Reduced Cost? Economic Perspectives on the Patient Protection & Affordable Care Act - Presented by the American Journal of Law & Medicine

Description

As the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) is implemented, states, healthcare industry stakeholders, employers, and citizens must navigate their way through a challenging new healthcare market. The administration contends that this new market is the key to improved health at a reduced cost. Panelists will analyze and discuss wide-reaching economic impacts of the ACA, including impacts on provision of healthcare services, labor and employment, state Medicaid programs, and the insurance industry.
