Kingsdale: ‘People Are Aware That There Are Huge Problems’
June 06, 2012
This is the first installment of KHN’s video series “Supreme Uncertainty: What’s Next After The Court Rules” KHN’s Mary Agnes Carey talks to Jon Kingsdale about the upcoming Supreme Court ruling on the health law and its implications for the future of health care. Kingsdale, who helped implement the Massachusetts health law, divides states into three camps when it comes to implementing the 2010 federal law: Some are preparing in earnest to be ready on time, some are taking steps but waiting on others until the Supreme Court rules and the fall elections occur, and other states have done nothing, with hopes the law will be struck down. Kingsdale now consults with states and others on implementation of the federal health law.
