Health Care Reform Update

The Healthcare Reform debate is still raging in Washington, but Congress is getting closer to a bill that has a chance of passing. How will anticipated changes to national health care affect us here in Hawaii? Dan Boylan moderates a diverse panel of experts on the topic, including State Senator and emergency room doctor Josh Green, MD; Executive Director of the Hawaii Business Health Council Gary Allen; Vice President of Hawaii Pacific Health Virginia Pressler, MD; and Howard Lee, UHA VP & Hawaii Assn. of Health Plans President. Contributing editor Howard Dicus sets the issue in an economic context and delivers his weekly "Everybody's Business" look at Hawaii's economy.

This conversation was recorded on December 17, 2009 in the PBS Hawaii studio.
