The ACA 2019: A Look Ahead
We're featuring a series this month called “2019: A Look Ahead” and continue with a look at the future of the Affordable Care Act. In the first two years of the Trump Administration and a Republican-controlled Congress, the ACA was challenged on a variety of fronts including the tax bill. Passed just over a year ago, the bill removed the health insurance mandate leading to the recent ruling by a federal judge in Texas that the ACA was unconstitutional. A coalition of 17 Democratic State Attorneys General is appealing that ruling and the new Democrat-controlled House is looking at ways to protect the healthcare law. Host Dan Loney examines all sides of the arguments with Mark Pauly, Health Management Professor at Wharton, Eric Clemons, Professor of Operations, Information and Decisions at Wharton, and Robert Field, Professor of Law and of Health Management and Policy at Drexel University, on Knowledge@Wharton.
