Q&A Session

Implementing Health Reform

September 27, 2010

Washington and the states are undertaking the task of implementing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the federal law signed by President Obama in March. This Q&A session followed presentations by former Institute Director Richard P. Nathan, who questioned whether the law will accomplish its goals of efficiency and cost control, and health-care consultant Deborah Bachrach, formerly deputy commissioner of health and Medicaid director for New York State, who detailed some of the implementation tasks that states face.
