David Gamage (UC-Berkeley) is participating in a panel discussion on Implementing Health Care Reform—What the Headlines Missed at the Southeastern Association of Law Schools 2012 Annual Conference in Amelia Island, Florida:
The 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is important, comprehensive, and controversial. It has been called the most important piece of federal social legislation in nearly 50 years. Certain provisions—the individual mandate in particular—have garnered more attention in the press and in the courts. But there is much more to health care reform, including provisions focusing on expanding coverage, controlling costs, and improving the quality of the health care delivery system. This workshop provides an opportunity to shed light on a diverse array of issues, provisions, and populations related to or impacted by health care reform. Participants will highlight, update, or reframe a particular aspect of health care reform.
