PRESENTERS:


John P. Geyman, MD
Professor Emeritus
Family Medicine

 
TOPIC:
Crisis in US Health Care: Threats of GOP Actions to Repeal, Replace or ‘Repair’ the ACA
 
DESCRIPTION:
Dr Geyman will summarize the overall Republican plan to “reform” our health care system, describe how its components won’t work, and discuss their adverse impacts on patients, families and the system. He will point out the dilemma that faces the GOP as it tries to take the ACA apart without an adequate or coherent replacement plan, and summarize what we can expect of the chaos that will result. Dr. Geyman will then discuss three basic alternatives to finance our health care system—revising the ACA, the GOP plan, and single-payer national health insurance— together with some promising developments toward real reform.
