Welcome to Part 2 of my Curbside Consult interview with Aaron Carroll, MD. Aaron is a prolific health policy writer and blogger. His main outlet is The Incidental Economist. He also writes for CNN.com, Academyhealth, and other outlets.
In his day job, he is a professor of pediatrics and health services researcher at Indiana University School of Medicine. Among other titles, he is Director of the Center for Health Policy and Professionalism Research. He received his MD from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine in 1998.
He completed an internship and residency in Pediatrics at the University of Washington, where he stayed to complete a health services research fellowship in the Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholars Program.
In Part 2 of 2, Aaron and I continue our discussion about the status of the Affordable Care Act. In this segment:
- Online glitches aside, is the Affordable Care Act working?
- Might the battle over health reform ultimately make Democratic and Republican legislators realize that they’ll get more done if they genuinely negotiate with each other?
