Chair of the Senate Health Committee- Senator Ed Hernandez

Senator Ed Hernandez holds a distinct place in history as Chair of the Senate Health Committee during the passage and implementation of the Affordable Care Act.  As a physician himself, he has seen first-hand the tragic results of living life without health insurance, and the amazing personal success stories that have followed the monumental change.  Join Zac and PopHealth Podcast for this insightful and wide-ranging interview with the Senator as we explore why he thinks repeal without a replacement would “send us back to the stone ages” and why he thinks people should be “very, very concerned” with their future access to care.  We also discuss potential GOP replacements, share real-life success stories of the ACA, and explore Senator Hernandez’s ‘Transparency in Drug Pricing’ bill SB-17.
