health careThe School’s faculty and advisors to its programs in health sector management and policy are offering insight into health care reform in the wake of congressional passage of health care reform legislation. Steven Ullmann, director of the School’s programs in health sector management and policy, whose expertise has been featured extensively throughout the health care debate in news media ranging from CNN, the Fox News Network, and Nightly Business Report to Forbes.com, was quoted  extensively in The Miami Herald the day after the House vote.

Ullmann noted that since many South Florida businesses are very small, many people won’t benefit from a provision requiring all firms with more than 50 employees to have insurance.  “That means we're still not going to have a lot of people getting insurance at work,” Ullmann said.

Several members of the School’s Health Sector Management and Policy Advisory Board are also offering insight about how the expansion of health insurance coverage to include millions who are currently uninsured will affect the business side of health care.  Richard L. Clarke, president and CEO of Healthcare Financial Management Association, Linda S. Quick, president of South Florida Hospital & Health care Association, and Frank V. Sacco, BA '70, president and CEO of Memorial Healthcare System each have their own take on the possible ramifications. Read their comments here.
