Experts Predict Robust Health Care Agenda After Election

Avalere Health experts who spoke during an Aug. 11 webinar predicted an “active legislative environment” for health care regardless of which party emerges victorious from the coming election. The selection of Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) as former vice president Joe Biden’s running mate probably won’t change that or move Biden’s health care agenda further left.

During the webinar, which was recorded before Harris was announced as the presumptive Democratic vice presidential nominee, Avalere founder Dan Mendelson predicted the next president and Congress will confront three major health issues: the COVID-19 pandemic, expanding health insurance coverage and reducing racial disparities in health care access and delivery.
