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 not:
- codify the Trump administration’s price transparency rules
- prohibit balance billing
- expand health savings accounts, and
- provide states with greater Medicaid flexibility.
- subsidize health insurance through a COBRA continuation subsidy or expanded ACA subsidies, nor
- provide a state bailout.
