Medicaid and the ACA

Much of the recent focus around the implementation of the Affordable Care Act has been on the decision by individual states on whether to accept federal money to expand Medicaid. And while the debate over payment for health care continues, providers and policy makers fear the progress of cutting health care costs for everyone may be lost in the national and regional discussions. On this program, we look at the decision by leaders in both Carolinas’ to reject the federal expansion of Medicaid and the partnerships which could be strengthened to provide care for the uninsured. Joining the conversation are South Carolina DHHS Director Tony Keck, Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center CEO Dr. John McConnell, Greenville Health System Chief Medical Officer Dr. Angelo Sinopoli and Carolinas HealthCare System CEO Michael Tarwater.
