The ACA And Utah On Wednesday’s Access Utah

health_care.jpg

Republican leaders in the U.S. Senate have delayed a vote on their Obamacare repeal bill (the Better Care Reconciliation Act) until after the 4th of the July recess.

We’re going to talk about the U.S. health care system on Wednesday’s Access Utah. What do you think health care in the U.S. should look like?

Are you in favor of keeping the Affordable Care Act? Would you like to see the American Health Care Act, which passed the U.S. House, or the Senate bill, take its place?

Should the health care system be more market-based? What should government’s role be?

And what are you most concerned about? Costs? Coverage? You can tell us your story right now by emailing upraccess@gmail.com.

We’ll be talking with medical doctor and Republican state representative Ed Redd; and Jason Stevenson with the Utah Health Policy Project.
