Explainer Episode 51 – Beyond Medicaid? Potential Paths Forward to Better Healthcare

Signed into law in 1965, Medicaid has been active for almost 58 years, during which time its scope has fluctuated and many conversations have been had as to what the appropriate reach, means, and aims for the program should be. In this podcast featuring Tom Miller, he lays out a brief summary of how we got to where we are. He highlights the benefits Medicaid has brought as well as some of the downsides he perceives, and lays out a possible path forward to better healthcare that practically addresses the hurdles to healthcare reform legally, financially, and politically.
