Will Obamacare Really Collapse And What Will That Mean For Houston?

Will the Affordable Care Act really fail if no changes are made? And, if so, how might that affect patients and healthcare providers in Greater Houston?

President Donald Trump and GOP lawmakers failed to repeal or replace the Affordable Care Act, and Pres. Trump has said we should let Obamacare “fail.” But will it indeed fail if no further action is taken? And, if so, how will it affect Houston with its large sector of healthcare providers?

We discuss what the future of the Affordable Care Act might look like in Houston with two guests: Dr. Vivian Ho, director of the Baker Institute for Public Policy’s Center for Health and Biosciences, and Dr. Tim Garson, director of the Texas Medical Center’s Health Policy Institute.
