Partner Judith Waltz was quoted in the Law360 article, “4 Key Areas As Biden Sets New Health Policy Path In 2021,” that explores how a Biden administration will follow or abandon Trump’s health policy in the following areas: pandemic policies, current initiatives, the future of ACA rollbacks, and drug pricing.

Waltz told Law360, "Significant reforms to health care delivery resulting from the [pandemic] ... will stay because they largely represent an improvement in patient care and access.” She continued, "CMS implemented a lot of nonpolitically motivated — albeit probably politically influenced — improvements to Medicare in the past four years."

Waltz also predicted that Biden will scrap "policies that limit access to coverage for Medicaid and Obamacare, e.g., work requirements for Medicaid.
