The Muskie School of Public Service at the University of Southern Maine recently hosted a forum discussion entitled “Examining Maine’s Options Under the Affordable Care Act”.
Due to time constraints, we were not able to bring you the full panel discussion on-air. In addition to the on-air version, we have provided the original version that includes the full panel discussion.
More than 100 registrants from throughout the state joined national and state experts to address the issue of MaineCare expansion under the ACA. Featured speakers included Joseph Antos, Wilson H. Taylor Scholar in Health Care and Retirement Policy at American Enterprise Institute in Washington, DC, as well as Sara Rosenbaum, Harold and Jane Hirsh Professor of Health Law and Policy at the George Washington University School of Public Health and Health Services.
