The American health care system is about to enter a new era, the National Journal says: “Countdown to Transformation will examine the complex political, medical and business ramifications of the implementation of Affordable Care Act.” Beshear has taken a high profile in the rollout of federal health reform because Kentucky is the only Southern state to expand Medicaid and run its own health-insurance exchange.
Gov. Steve Beshear will deliver the keynote address to the National Journal forum “Countdown to Transformation: A Roadmap to Health Care’s Next Era—90 Days Out” tomorrow at 12:15 p.m. Eastern time. The event will take place in the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Atrium Hall at 1300 Pennsylvania Ave. NW in Washington, D.C. It will also be live-streamed on the magazine’s website, a press release from Beshear’s office said.
