The Affordable Care Act: Past, Present and Future

March 23, 2017

On March 23, William B. Schultz, former general counsel of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (2011-2016), discussed the complicated politics surrounding the Affordable Care Act and possible policy options for the next phase of the law’s evolution. Speaking at Harvard Law School exactly seven years after the Affordable Care Act (ACA) became law, Schultz outlined the legal and political dimensions of healthcare reform that have made it a perennially divisive issue. Harvard Law School Professor Einer Elhauge, founding director of the Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology and Bioethics, moderated the talk.
