The Biden/Harris Administration will be 100 days old on April 30th. How has this new team affected the healthcare of our country? Is COVID in check, has the ACA survived the Supreme Court and are more Americans insured? Is the healthcare industry emerging from the pandemic stronger? Is the outlook bright for providers and patients alike? This program will assess promises made and kept and those that fell off the grid. Projections for what to expect from the White House (and Congress) for the remainder of the year will be included. Join us for strategic insights on what to expect from the new Biden administration: challenges & opportunities for health care and health reform in 2021 and beyond.
