What do you think will be key to making health reform work in 2012?

Posted by Jean Silver-Isenstadt, MD, PhD, NPA Executive Director January 22, 2012 at 12:02 PM

This year key features of the health care reform law will be put in place, particularly at the state level.  States are approaching implementation in a variety of different ways.  In “The Fate of Health Care Reform—What to Expect in 2012,” David Jones discusses four key aspects of health care reform in 2012:

1)      2012 state legislative sessions, which run from February to June

2)      The Supreme Court challenge (arguments in March, ruling in June)

3)      Establishing state-based exchanges (June deadline to seek federal grants)

4)      Election Day 2012 (Nov 6!)

Read a perspective piece on what various outcomes of the 2012 election would mean for reform here.

For a review of the timeline of implementation, check out this helpful guide from Kaiser Family Foundation.

So, what do YOU think will be key to making health reform work in 2012?
