ObamaCare At Six Months: What Else Have We Learned?

On the six month anniversary of the signing of health care reform legislation, research is emerging on the impact of many provisions of the bill, including the cost to taxpayers, the destruction of jobs, reduced quality of health services, and the burden of regulatory requirements.  The symposium will feature the release of a new study co-authored by OCW director Jim Capretta and Senior Research Fellow in Health Economics Robert Book on the consequences of the new health care law on the Medicare Advantage program.
