Health policy and health care law experts at the George Washington University School of Public Health and Health Services are available to comment on the 2012 election and how the results might alter the health care landscape, including the fate of the Affordable Care Act. The landmark health reform bill was passed by Congress in 2010 but has yet to be fully implemented.

The following GW experts can offer insight and analysis on what the future might hold for the individual mandate, the plan to expand Medicaid and other crucial issues on the health policy agenda in the months ahead.
