KHN And WSJ Reporters Discuss Health Overhaul

Kaiser Health News staff writer Mary Agnes Carey and The Wall Street Journal's Janet Adamy discussed the many ways the health overhaul law will affect health care consumers young and old, and especially people with Medicare coverage on NPR's Talk of the Nation yesterday. "While the law will eventually affect almost all Americans, many companies have already updated policies. Young people and older adults, particularly those on Medicare, will see some of the law's most immediate effects," NPR writes in introducing the segment (Conan, 5/18).
