The Healthcare Reform Act

With the recent passing of the Healthcare Reform Bill in March, what does this mean for Hawaii? This week's panel will take a deeper look into how the bill affects everyone in the islands and the changes being made in the health insurance market. Joining host Dan Boylan are J. P. Schmidt, State Insurance Commissioner; Fred Fortin, Sr. Vice President at HMSA; Virginia Pressler, Executive V.P. and Chief Strategic Officer of Hawaii Pacific Health; and Beth Giesting, CEO of the Hawaii Primary Care Association. Contributing editor Howard Dicus files his weekly "Everybody's Business" report on the state of Hawaii's economy and places the show's topic in an economic context.

This conversation was recorded on May 13, 2010 in the PBS Hawaii studio. Insights on PBS Hawaii is presented on Thursdays at 7:30 PM on PBS Hawaii.
