Summary
Since passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) in 2010, this particular road to health care reform in the U.S. has been riddled with political potholes and subject to slowdowns as a result of legislative and judicial challenges. But with the Supreme Court's landmark stamp of constitutional approval this past June and with President Obama's reelection on 6 November, it is now clear that some form of "Obamacare" is here to stay, at least for four more years. Indeed, repeal of the ACA may no longer be a top Republican priority, as House Speaker John Boehner noted on 8 November: "The election changes that-Obamacare is the law of the land." So what's ahead as we implement the ACA? In this Medical Center Hour, Washington and Lee law professor and ACA expert Timothy Jost and University of Virginia health policy analyst Carolyn Engelhard outline what must be accomplished in order to realize this ambitious overhaul of our health care system. And what will be the responsibilities of and implications for academic health centers like UVA as the ACA takes effect? Co-presented with the Sadie Lewis Webb Program in Law and Health, the Institute for Practical Ethics and Public Life, the Department of Public Health Sciences, and the Bioethics and Health Policy Medical Student Interest Group A John F.
