Dr. Scheffler was quoted in a January 2017 USA Today Magazine article about the future of the Affordable Care Act. The article explores the common ground and areas of agreement between Republicans and Democrats regarding health care reform in the midst of the post-election “repeal versus replace” rhetoric.
“Richard Scheffler, professor of health economics at the University of California, Berkeley, explains, ‘I think the Affordable Care Act has done a great job of getting people covered, who, quite frankly, never ever had insurance… It affects people’s lives in so many ways. It makes them healthier, more productive, and kept many of them from financial crisis.’ ”
