A welcome to first-time Pod guest Philip Rocco. Philip is on the faculty in the Department of Political Science at Marquette University. His research examines the consequences of institutional fragmentation for the development of public policy, with a focus on the politics of health reform in the United States. We cover a lot of territory inspired by Phil’s recent publications, Medicaid managed care and data, All-Payer Claims Databases, and public comments received during the Medicaid waiver process. A brief lightning round touches on ACA stabilization, more data about Indiana’s 1115 waiver, and the stinkbug-in-chief.
