The national conversation surrounding health care has been amplified by the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Even as the law goes into effect, health care providers and insurers are filtering facts from partisan rhetoric while deciphering the actual legislation. On this program, Mike Riordan, CEO of Greenville Health System, provides analysis of the changing dynamics of health care, where some hospitals are becoming insurers and some insurers are opening medical practices. Brad Dean of the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce and Mark Hall of Wake Forest University join the dialogue.
