In an appearance on the PBS NewsHour last night, Health Affairs Editor in Chief Susan Dentzer broke down the composition of America’s uninsured population and discussed how health reform is expected to extend coverage to 32 million uninsured people. Dentzer described the planned expansion of Medicaid and the creation of state-based exchanges for individuals and small businesses that would feature income-based subsidies.
Note: Yesterday’s post about Dentzer’s earlier appearance on the NewsHour misstated her remarks concerning the timeline for implementing bans on coverage restrictions for preexisting conditions. The current corrected version of the post contains the correct timeline.Email This Post Print This Post
