Sound Medicine – Challenge to the Affordable Care Act

Sound Medicine is a radio show produced by the Indiana University School of Medicine and WFYI Public Radio. I’m on this week’s broadcast, talking about legal challenges to the ACA:

The Affordable Care Act, also known as the healthcare reform law of 2011, is a step closer to a hearing before the U.S. Supreme Court, probably in June 2012. In August, the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals ruled the law’s mandate for individual insurance coverage unconstitutional.

This week, Sound Medicine healthcare policy analyst Aaron Carroll, MD, explains the individual mandate and why the appeals court ruled against it.

Dr. Carroll will discuss possible outcomes of a Supreme Court challenge.
