25th Annual Dr. Raymond C. Grandon Lecture: The Impact of HealthCare on the 2016 Election
The candidates in the 2016 Presidential election have very different policy approaches to health care, spanning the spectrum from "repeal and replace to the ACA" to "Medicare for all". Since the ACA was signed into law in 2010, healthcare has undergone a tremendous transformation and all of America, from individuals, to organizations, to the government, have been scrambling to put policies and procedures in place to meet the health-care reforms mandated by the law. This election has the potential to change many of the policies outlined in the ACA. This program will explore the potential impact of each of the candidates' approaches and implications for health policy and the ACA.
After completing this knowledge-based activity, participants should be able to:
1. Identify the differences in positions between the two major parties and between individual candidates within the parties.
2. Describe the very different impact of the national healthcare debate on primary elections and candidate campaigns.
3. Discuss the potential implications of election-driven changes in the Affordable Care Act on healthcare policy, delivery systems, and funding given one of the following scenarios: split government control, full Republican control, and full Democratic control.
