It’s election day eve and healthcare remains a priority as America votes in 2020. We may not know exactly which horse will win the race, but thanks to Scott’s time on The Hill we have a pretty good idea of how health care policy could play out, no matter who comes out on top at the polls.

Both parties promise healthcare reforms, but what might actually get delivered? Scott and Ed talk (generally – no calls or emails, please) about potential election outcomes and the healthcare policy proposals being discussed by the candidates.

  • Is ERISA your friend, or a fiend?
  • What is the outlook for healthcare policy if the Trump administration wins another term?
  • What is Vice President Biden’s potential vision of healthcare policy?
  • What do we know about Biden’s idea of a public option?
  • What’s in the offing for drug pricing reform, wellness program regulations, and surprise billing legislation?

And don’t miss the return of the lightning round! Scott shares his insider perspective on drug pricing reforms, reproposed wellness program regulations from the EEOC, surprise medical billing and protections for preexisting conditions.
