The 2018 elections will be critical in determining whether health care options are available for families and adults for years to come. With Medicaid expansion ballot initiatives, governors' races, and elections with party control of state legislatures hanging in the balance, the future of health care has never been a more critical issue at the voting booth at the state level. What's more, the Congressional midterms will have a critical influence on the future of the Affordable Care Act and the structure of the Medicaid program as we know it.
This webinar discusses the impact of the 2018 elections on health policy at the state and national levels and how the election outcomes are likely to affect health care access for families. It specifically assesses the election implications for the Affordable Care Act, Medicaid, prescription drugs, and other health care issues for consumers.
