As part of its new Teach-Out Series—an open, online opportunity for global learners—the University of Michigan is hosting a session on The Future of Obamacare: Repeal, Repair, or Replace? The teach-out will feature policy experts discussing the economic, legal and public health implications of potential changes to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), or Obamacare.
“The first Republican attempt to repeal and replace may have failed, but that doesn’t mean Obamacare is safe,” says teach-out instructor Richard Hirth, chair of Health Management & Policy at the University of Michigan School of Public Health. “The failure of the AHCA (American Health Care Act) provides an opportunity to step back and ask what each side is trying to accomplish in health policy.”
While the ACA’s provisions to increase insurance coverage receive the most attention in the press, this teach-out will also highlight the ACA’s provisions regarding the transformation of healthcare delivery and funding for public health initiatives.
This teach-out begins May 12, 2017. The event is free and open to the public. Learn more and enroll here.
