Healthcare is a Human Right with Andy Slavitt

Our guest this week is Andy Slavitt. Andy is a leading expert on healthcare in America. As Acting Administrator of the Center for Medicare and Medicaid services under President Obama, he took over management of healthcare.gov after a difficult rollout and got it up and running. He’s the founder of United States of Care – a nonpartisan nonprofit dedicated to expanding healthcare to everyone, the host of the In the Bubble podcast, and Alyssa Milano’s friend.
