After Obamacare: The Future of U.S. Health Care

The election of Donald Trump to the presidency will be the most consequential event for U.S. health care reform since the passage of the Affordable Care Act in 2010. Repealing Obamacare will be a top priority for the incoming administration and the Republican-controlled Congress. But there’s tremendous uncertainty on what might replace Obamacare as well as what options will be available for the 20 million newly insured who now benefit from exchange subsidies and the Medicaid expansion. When might premium subsidies and the individual mandate be repealed? How would high-risk pools, selling insurance across state lines, health savings accounts, and block grants change who receives health coverage, and at what cost? This webinar will discuss key ideas put forward in Republican proposals, how this political shift will change U.S. health care coverage, and what questions journalists should be asking as these dramatic changes unfold. We will be joined by MIT’s Jonathan Gruber, an architect of the Affordable Care Act; American Enterprise Institute's Joseph Antos, former assistant director for health and human resources at the Congressional Budget Office (CBO); the Hoover Institution’s Lanhee Chen, a leading conservative commentator and policy advisor; and Jennifer Haberkorn, senior health care reporter for Politico.

WHEN: Tuesday, January 24, from 10-11 a.m. PT / 1-2 p.m. ET

Our distinguished panel includes:

Joseph Antos is the Wilson H. Taylor Scholar in Health Care and Retirement Policy at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), where his research focuses on the economics of health policy — including the Affordable Care Act, Medicare, the uninsured, and the overall reform of the health care system and its financing. He also studies the impact of health care expenditures on federal budget policy. Before joining AEI, Antos was assistant director for health and human resources at the Congressional Budget Office (CBO). He has also held senior positions in the US Department of Health and Human Services, the Office of Management and Budget, and the President’s Council of Economic Advisers.

Jonathan Gruber, Ph.D. is the Ford Professor of Economics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he has taught since 1992. He is also the director of the Health Care Program at the National Bureau of Economic Research, where he is a research associate, and president elect of the American Society of Health Economists. He is a member of the Institute of Medicine, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the National Academy of Social Insurance. He has published more than 150 research articles, has edited six research volumes, and is the author of Public Finance and Public Policy, a leading undergraduate text, and Health Care Reform, a graphic novel. In 2006 he received the American Society of Health Economists Inaugural Medal for the best health economist in the nation aged 40 and under.

From 2003-2006, Gruber was a key architect of Massachusetts’ ambitious health reform effort, and in 2006 became an inaugural member of the Health Connector Board, the main implementing body for that effort. During 2009-2010 he served as a technical consultant to the Obama Administration and worked with both the Administration and Congress to help craft the Affordable Care Act. In 2011 he was named “One of the Top 25 Most Innovative and Practical Thinkers of Our Time” by Slate Magazine. In 2006 and 2012, he was rated as one of the top 100 most powerful people in health care in the U.S. by Modern Healthcare Magazine.

Jennifer Haberkorn is a senior health care reporter for Politico and Politico Pro. She’s covered the Affordable Care Act since it was being debated in Congress in 2009. Since then, she has written about the law from Capitol Hill, the federal agencies, the courts and outside the Beltway. Before arriving at Politico, Haberkorn covered Congress and local business news for The Washington Times. A 2013 Center for Health Journalism National Fellow, her work has also appeared in Health Affairs and The New Republic. Haberkorn is a graduate of Marquette University, where she majored in journalism and served as editor of The Marquette Tribune.
