Elizabeth Canis discusses the questions and implications around the potential repeal of the Affordable Care Act. For Canis, sustainable change means understanding the complexity of the legislation and finding bipartisan support for alternatives. Whatever result the administration’s policies have on healthcare in America, reducing the cost trajectory and addressing cost transparency will be critical to successful future changes.
“What approach will the administration have to create sustainable change to provide the best benefit to the most Americans?”
