Healthcare: Devil in the Details

TRUDY LIEBERMAN
Lieberman directs the health and medical reporting program in the graduate school of journalism at City University of New York and is a contributing editor to the Columbia Journalism Review. A complete archive of her Campaign Desk articles can be found here .

Her pieces include a string of articles titled “Who Will Be at the Table?” — which tracks the efforts of various lobbies. Another series is “Health Reform Lessons from Massachusetts,” since that state’s legislation has become the blueprint for health system change on a national scale, and its advocates have aggressively marketed some variation of the Massachusetts plan as the reform of choice.

Other recent pieces include: “The Devil in the Details, Part I: The tug-of-war over penalties for not buying coverage,” “The Devil in the Details, Part II: Who can afford health insurance after reform?” and “Truth Emerges about the Public Option: Who really will be allowed to join?”
