Health Care After the Supreme Court Decision: What’s Next?
The Alliance for Health Reform and the Kaiser Family Foundation discuss the recent Supreme Court ruling on the constitutionality of the health reform law.
Panelists explore such questions as: What does the court’s ruling mean for those without health insurance? Will states that choose to participate in the Medicaid expansion be ready to cover nearly all non-disabled adults under age 65 with household incomes at or below 133 percent of the federal poverty level as of January, 2014? Will some states likely choose not to participate in the expansion now that the court has removed the most severe penalty for not doing so?

Speakers for this session:
The panel is co-moderated by Ed Howard of the Alliance for Health Reform and Diane Rowland of the Kaiser Family Foundation’s Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured (KCMU).
