Lunch & Listen: What’s next for Medicaid and the Affordable Care Act and why Republicans are not done with repeal (Audio)

If you missed it over the weekend, be sure to listen to our interview with Dr. Jonathan Oberlander, professor of health policy and management at UNC’s Gillings School of Global Public Health and professor and chair of social medicine at UNC’s medical school.

Oberlander discussed what we can expect next for Medicaid and the Affordable Care Act after the latest failure by the GOP to repeal and replace the ACA.

“There is a bipartisan direction out there. [But] I think there is a fair chance that Republicans will try to revive “repeal and replace” and perhaps wait and see what the results are of the 2018 elections are and if they pick up seats in the Senate.”
