In this episode, Suzanne Spradley and Chase Cannon look at Joe Biden’s health care proposals, now that election season is formally upon us. Suzanne leads off by addressing the advantages and challenges of Biden’s initiative to add a public option, and how that might interact with the current private and marketplace plans. Suzanne and Chase discuss several past state initiatives relating to public options, and the challenges those states faced with affordability and solvency. Suzanne addresses Biden’s plan to expand Medicaid and improve the ACA, including restoration of the individual mandate. Suzanne and Chase close with a comparison of some of Biden’s initiatives to the employer-sponsored insurance market, and conclude that the employer model works well and should be preserved.
