Podcast: States Are Leading The Way On The Public Option
To date, the public option hasn’t been included in the discourse for the Biden administration. Instead the administration has focused on supporting the Affordable Care Act, among other agenda items.
Now states are leading the charge and considering the adoption of public option policies. Nevada’s Governor stated earlier this month that they would sign a public option bill while Colorado is also considering a public option. Washington adopted similar legislation in 2019.
On today’s episode, Georgetown University’s Katie Keith joins Health Affairs Blog Editor Chris Fleming to discuss the latest on how states are leading the way on the public option. In addition, Katie shares her insights on where the major Affordable Care Act case – California v. Texas – currently stands in the Supreme Court.
