December Health Policy Update
The Times They Are A-Changing
2017 was going to be a reset after the November 8th election with new members of Congress, the anticipated retirement of long-tenured federal agency staffers, Supreme Court Justice nominations and change in White House personnel. However, the Electoral College victory of Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump is likely to result in a wholesale upset of most every tenet of healthcare policy we have come to understand, not just in the past 8 years, but in some cases, for decades.
This Transition Edition of the LiverMatters Healthcare Policy Update will discuss the implications of:
- The Signing of 21st Century Cures by President Obama
- Repeal and Replace of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act
- The Trump Transition Prospective Nominees for HHS, CMS, and FDA
- Value, Quality, and Drug Development Opportunities for Patients and Patient Advocates to Look for in 2017
Read more on the above topics in this issue of the policy memo.
