David Sundwall is the person to talk to in Utah to understand health policy. He’s a Family Physician who has worked in Washington for many years on Sen Hatch’s staff, as well as the head administrator for the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). He then served as the Director for the Utah Department of Health for many years. He’s now a Professor of Public Health at the University of Utah.
He and I discussed Medicaid, it’s current role in the US system, and the future of the program on my podcast. It was deemed a little too political to be supported by my usual host, but no matter what you think of the program, I think you’ll definitely find this enlightening.
Note that the opinions expressed are those of Dr Sundwall and myself, not necessarily anyone else.
