Avalere Health CEO Dan Mendelson discusses election’s impact on health reform

Posted Nov 03 2010 1:37pm

Dan Mendelson, president and CEO of health care business and policy advisory firm Avalere Health talks to me about how yesterday’s elections are likely to influence the course of health reform.

Key takeaways:

  • PPACA won’t be repealed but may be modified
  • Republicans will use the appropriation process to influence how regulations are written
  • President Obama faces a choice: make some compromises that appeal to the Republicans or take a hard, partisan line
  • Cost reduction and delivery system reform efforts will gain favor
  • Doctors are likely to have to keep coming back to lobby for temporary reprieves from automatic reimbursement cuts under Medicare
