Radio Smart Talk for Tuesday, December 11:
A poll commissioned for witf's Transforming Health initiative this fall asked the question, "How much do you know about the healthcare reform law that was passed in 2010?"
Forty-one percent answered "only a little." Another 15% said they know "nothing at all." That means 56% know very little or nothing about a law that probably will have an impact on every single American.
A few parts of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act have already been implemented, but some of the most significant changes won't happen until 2013 or 2014.
Now that President Obama has been re-elected, the future of the ACA is more certain and those who waited to asked questions about the law are seeking answers.
Tuesday's Radio Smart Talk will do just that.
Appearing on the program will be Scott Malan, Senior Vice President, Federal Government Affairs for Stevens and Lee, a Harrisburg law firm, who also has had a long career as a lobbyist in the healthcare field and Dr. Joseph Anderson, an Affiliated Adjunct Professor of Business, Economics, and Public Administration at several Pennsylvania colleges and universities.
Listen to the program:
