In this March 2017 congressional briefing, RAND senior economist, Christine Eibner, discusses how individuals and employers will respond to major health care policy changes as the new administration reassesses the Affordable Care Act.
After lawmakers abandoned legislation to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, House Speaker Paul Ryan said, "We're going to be living with Obamacare for the foreseeable future." But Republican leaders and the White House have vowed to continue efforts to overhaul the health care law.
In this Call with the Experts, Christine Eibner, RAND senior economist and director of RAND COMPARE, a project that uses economic modeling to predict how individuals and employers will respond to major health policy changes, talks about what policymakers should consider and answers questions about changes the Trump administration could make without Congress' help. Media relations director Jeffrey Hiday moderates the call.
