This week we talked with prolific health law scholar Mark Hall, Director of the Health Law and Policy Program and Fred D. & Elizabeth L. Turnage Professor of Law at Wake Forest University School of Law.
Our discussion started with Medicaid expansion and a fascinating paper, Medicaid Expansion Costs in North Carolina: A Frank Discussion (with Edwin Shoaf) that takes a rigorous cost-benefit approach to the topic. Next up we discussed the potential for employer private exchanges and some of their legal implications. Finally, we looked back on Mark’s 2014 frank assessment of the ACA. Check out Mark’s SSRN page for more of his contributions to the health law and policy literature.
