When Congress passed the Affordable Care Act of 2010, it gave state health care systems until January 2014 to build new health care exchanges and expand their health safety nets. Now as the states await a U.S. Supreme Court ruling on the act--also known as Obamacare--they confront political uncertainty and growing pressures on their health systems. On Monday, June 11 at 1:00 p.m., the Kojo Nnamdi show (on WAMU 88.5 FM) will explore the different paths taken by Virginia and Maryland, and examine whether innovations at the state level will lower costs for consumers.

Jack Meyer, Professor of the Practice in the School of Public Health and School of Public Policy, will be one of the guests.
