From Goldman graduate Annie Campbell Washington, a reflection on her rise to elected office in Oakland. From Jesús Guzmán, life as an undocumented student growing up in California.

UC Berkeley School of Public Health

The passage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) will have a pervasive impact on the nation and particularly California, the most populous and diverse state in the country.

In this new program from UC Berkeley’s School of Public Health, the Goldman School of Public Policy and the Robert Wood Johnson Post-doctoral Scholars Program in Health Policy Research, Larry Levitt, Senior Vice President for Special Initiatives, The Kaiser Family Foundation, and Bruce Bodaken, Chairman and CEO, Blue Shield of California examine access, cost and quality of care issues.

Watch “Implementing Medi-Cal and Private Insurance Coverage in California,” online now. For even more discussion of important health policy issues, also check out our programs from UCSF’s Philip R. Lee Institute of Health Policy Studies.

Affordable Care Act: SCOTUS Rules, Cal Responds

We’ve heard what the Supreme Court had to say about their 5-4 decision to uphold President Obama’s Affordable Care Act, or “Obamacare.”  And if you’ve been paying even the slightest amount of attention, you’ve heard what the partisan pundits think on the various cable news talk shows. But how do scholars in public policy, economics and public health evaluate this hefty decision?

UC Berkeley’s Goldman School of Public Policy wanted to find out — and share the experience with UCTV viewers–so they gathered together a panel of experts to analyze the impacts of the Supreme Court’s decision and what it means for future health reform, constitutional law, medical care, health insurance, public policy and politics.  It’s a thorough, reasoned assessment — and one you surely won’t find on cable.

Watch “SCOTUS Rules, Cal Responds:  UC Berkeley Experts Assess Decision on the Affordable Care Act” in its entirety, or stay tuned next week when we post shorter highlights from the event as part of our “UCTV Prime: Vote” series.
