Major Changes to Healthcare Reform Law Unlikely
Health Leaders Media

The 2010 midterm elections brought about speculation that a GOP-controlled U.S. House of Representatives would take great effort to derail, or at least attempt to modify, the healthcare reform package. According to healthcare industry leaders, the latter appears to be more plausible, but not completely assured.

Anders Gilberg, the Medical Group Management Association’s vice president for public and private economic affairs, reiterated that a bill challenging healthcare reform, even if it got through the House of Representatives, would not make it through the Senate. “And it certainly would not make it past the President’s veto pen.”
