Event Details

How is implementation of the Affordable Care Act going in Texas? Come hear from a panel of experts on the front lines of the ACA rollout at this free lunchtime colloquium by the LBJ School's Center for Health and Social Policy (CHASP). 

Our panelists:


Topics the panel may explore include:

  • How is implementation of the Affordable Care Act going in Texas overall?
  • How is it comparing to implementation in other states? What is happening around the country that could offer models and best practices for us?
  • What are certain populations of Texans experiencing, e.g. low-income workers, racial/ethnic minorities, Spanish-language speakers, women, unemployed and underemployed Texans, seniors, or others intentionally out of the workforce?
  • Have there been unexpected (or expected!) problems with the rollout? What has been done to address these problems, and what else needs to happen?
  • Have there been any unexpected positive phenomena related to implementation?
  • How are the exchanges/marketplaces doing? How were Texans impacted by the problems with the federal website launch?
  • What are the impacts of Texas leaders' decision to forgo Medicaid expansion with regards to ACA implementation?
  • What are the prospects for future Medicaid expansion in Texas?
  • Are there lessons here for the new Dell Medical School?


This event is free and open to the public, but registration is required for catering and communication purposes. Lunch will be provided to all those who registered.

 

We encourage the use of alternative transportation to get to the LBJ School. A number of Capital Metro bus routes have stops on the streets adjacent to the LBJ School (including the 10, 20, 21, 22, 37, and several UT shuttles), and four bicycle racks are available on the east side of the building. If you need to drive, paid car parking is also available in the Manor Garage to the south of Sid Richardson Hall ($6 for 1-2 hours).
