Get Waiver, Avoid ACA: Former Health Czar


Alan Levine, a favorite health policy wonk among Republicans, is offering some advice to the Florida Legislature: exercise a waiver, and get around much of the Affordable Care Act, Florida Politics reports.

Levine’s interpretation says the waiver would permit Florida to get around the individual and employer mandates, and use federal dollars to fund state-based health programs, Florida Politics reports.
