Taking the Pulse of the People: a Health Insurance Exchange and Medicaid Expansion

By Dr. David C. Pate, News and Community
August 10, 2012

Thanks to all the folks who took part in my two-question poll on a state health insurance exchange and a possible expansion of Medicaid, parts of the Affordable Care Act recently upheld by the Supreme Court. More than 140 people took the time to register their thoughts, and I plan to report in a few weeks on what poll participants said in their responses.

I really appreciate the conversation we have started here on the blog and the terrific ideas and recommendations I’m receiving from you all. Thank you all, for your interest and support in transforming health care!
