Health Journalism 2011: Panelists suggest stories about health reform implementation

There are three key aspects for journalists to watch as the Affordable Care Act moves into its second year: Congress, the courts and the states, according to panelists speaking about "Health Reform: Repeal, replace of implement?"

Noam Levey, health policy reporter for the Los Angeles Times, suggested that reporters be aware of several Republican proposals, including those concerning medical malpractice, high risk pools, interstate sale of insurance, association health plans, variable health premiums and individual/employer mandates. 

Other reporters noted court cases that could affect implementation of the new health care law, as well as state actions and regulations that should be closely monitored.
