As chief health council to then-Senate Finance Committee Chair Max Baucus (D-MT) at the time of the passage of the Affordable Care Act, Liz Fowler was a major force in crafting and shepherding the landmark legislation through the Senate.

In her current post, Dr. Fowler will play a key role setting priorities for the future of the ACA, insurance exchanges, Medicaid expansion, and a host of other issues critical to the quality, accessibility, and affordability of American health care.

There will be an opportunity for viewers to contribute questions.
