Interviewer as Interviewee: David Introcaso Answers Listeners' Questions (May 27th) (Part I)
Since I've received and answered questions via email concerning podcast interviews and related health care policy questions over the past eight years, I thought it might be it might be useful to attempt answering listeners via a podcast program. This podcast addresses questions I received via my solicitation a few months ago. Joe DiLauro, the gentleman whom introduces the podcast and thanks listeners after each interview, and moreover my audio engineer, poses the questions.
During Part I of this discussion, approximately 22 minutes, I address questions concerning the current COVID-19 pandemic and questions concerning health care policy specifics related to Republican and Democratic party approaches to health care reform, Congressional functioning and policy management by Medicare program regulators.
