In this episode of “What the Health?” Julie Rovner of Kaiser Health News, Sarah Kliff of Vox.com, Joanne Kenen of Politico and Alice Ollstein of Talking Points Memo discuss the inclusion of health policies into the current tax cut debate, including a possible repeal of the fines for people who fail to maintain health insurance. Also, the latest on the Children’s Health Insurance Program, a nominee to lead the Department of Health and Human Services, and a remembrance of health economist Uwe Reinhardt, who died this week at age 80.
