This week features a welcome return to the pod by Boston University health law professor Wendy Mariner. The three of us present an expanded “lighting round.” We discuss the almost-gone individual mandate, Murray-Alexander, deficit hawks targeting Medicare, the ramifications of the CVS-Aetna merger, the CMS Guidance on the contraceptive services opt-out, and a new health security settlement out of California.
Frank also mentions Centene as a potential kingpin of further health care consolidation, and his testimony before Congress on Nov. 30. TWIHL may well be the only podcast on earth to have both co-hosts before the House Energy & Commerce Committee the same year. So be sure to subscribe! And Frank welcomes AALS attendees to a panel on health law in San Diego on January 4. “From Obamacare to Trumpcare: The Future of American Healthcare” will be 10:30am – 12:00pm at the San Diego Marriott Hotel & Marina, Pacific Ballroom 22, North Tower/Level 1.
