USA Policy Expectations for a New Administration
During the 2020 US Presidential Election, several campaign promises, policies, and healthcare reforms were presented by both the Republican and Democratic parties. Since winning the election, President Biden, his new administration, and the new democrat-controlled congress have prioritized efforts to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the administration has not been idle in targeting broader changes promised on the campaign trail, including meaningful expansions to the Affordable Care Act layered into their landmark COVID-19 relief package. Uncertainty remains, but more policy proposals, executive orders, and bills are expected in the coming years of the Biden administration.
This episode, which kicks off season two of CBPartners’ Pharma Take-away, discusses the possible evolution of healthcare and healthcare policy in the United States, and explores the changes we may expect over the next few years as a result of the party transition. Topics covered include:
- Healthcare–related Trump-era executive orders and review proposals
