Schaeffer, Goldman op-ed explains how CA ‘provides model’ to replace ACA

February 14, 2017

The Sacramento Bee published an op-ed by USC Trustee Leonard D. Schaeffer and Dana Goldman, USC Price professor and director of the USC Schaeffer Center for Health Policy & Economics, on how California’s implementation of the Affordable Care Act can provide a model for the rest of the country. “Congress has an opportunity to establish a long-term political legacy with viable health reform legislation in cooperation with the private sector. To make it work, they will need the nation’s health plans as fully committed partners, just as they are in California,” they wrote.
