Ford School faculty leading the way on Affordable Care Act discussion
On October 7, Davis, professor of medicine and public policy, launched a free online course titled "Understanding and Improving the U.S. Healthcare System" on Oct. 7 on Coursera. Through this course, Davis wants to engage learners to think about how they can play a role in improving the system at the personal level—as patients, health care providers or in other capacities.
In a new Policy Points video, Levy addresses questions about how health care reform will impact coverage provided by employers. Levy argues that the changes stemming from the ACA should not be a major cause for concern for those who rely on employers for coverage, stating:
"Five years from now we are going to have a functioning health insurance exchange system that provides a place for people to get health insurance coverage when, for whatever reason, they don't have coverage from an employer. I think those systems are going to work well, I think it is going to be a valuable option for people and I think we are going to say 'I can't ever believe it was not this way.'"
