Health Policy Agendas

Yesterday, we sent you an op-ed by Brian Blase of Galen and Lanhee Chen of Stanford University and the Hoover Institution with “Recommendations for Trump's second-term health care agenda.”

Today, Blase offers recommendations for Congress, detailing four health reform priorities Congress should enact and two prominent proposals to avoid.
This being Friday, we offer below a very quick overview of his latest piece in Forbes, What Congress Should and Should Not Do on Health Care.”
Congress should: 
  • codify the Trump administration’s price transparency rules
  • prohibit balance billing
  • expand health savings accounts, and 
  • provide states with greater Medicaid flexibility. 
Congress should not:
  • subsidize health insurance through a COBRA continuation subsidy or expanded ACA subsidies, nor 
  • provide a state bailout.
