Daily Health Policy Report and Afternoon Update

The Kaiser Daily Health Policy Report draws from more than 300 news organizations' stories related to health policy. The reports aim to provide objective, balanced and thorough coverage of media reports. Each weekday staff members scour these sources, excerpt and summarize the most important facts and quotes.

Writers and editors work to ensure that stories are:

  • Relevant
  • Nonpartisan and unbiased
  • Concise
  • Comprehensive. Stories must reflect a breadth of coverage from diverse national and local sources
  • Indicative of media attention. We strive to depict the amount and type of news coverage a story received
