Guest: Gary Alexander, Health Care Policy Expert, garyalexanderri.com
Host: Mike Stenhouse Time: 30 minutes
Alexander served as Secretary of RI Health and Human Services under Governor Don Carcieri. He is highly regarded for is experience and expertise in health care policy and public welfare. He points out that one of the major changes in national health care policy is based on the Rhode Island model for Medicaid waiver or the aggregate cap on spending, which forced RI administrators to become cost conscience without cutting Medicaid services. Many popular beliefs about upcoming changes to national health care policy are clarified and in some cases “myths” are debunked.
