In a follow up to their conversation during this year’s (virtual) Insurance Leadership Forum, Joel Wood, The Council’s SVP of Government Affairs, and national political analyst David Axelrod, discuss the incoming administration, what may come of the ACA, prospects of a public option, Medicare, prescription drug costs and more.

And that’s what makes this different.”
