California Healthcare: Failings and Solutions

On today’s show, host Cat Brooks returns! She and host Brian Edwards-Tiekert discuss the failings of the American healthcare system regardless of whether reforms pass during our current session of Congress. What can be done for the people who get priced out of our current healthcare system? And what can California’s relatively progressive state government and relatively aggressive insurance commissioner do to fill in the gaps left by federal policy?
