Managing Government Relations Director Ilisa Halpern Paul was quoted in a Modern Healthcare article on the cementing of the 2010 health care overhaul and the major decisions lawmakers must consider in the weeks and months ahead.
President Obama’s re-election means the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) as the law of the land for the foreseeable future. The practical effect is that the Obama administration will resume issuing a slew of regulations implementing the ACA after slowing the pace in the run-up to the election.
“I think we're going to see a parade of policies, rules and regulations coming out very quickly,” said Ilisa.
“With Nov. 16 as the deadline for states to know of their intention on moving forward with exchanges, I think it's critically important that the administration get out as much information as possible,” she said.
