Email a Friend
Mercedes Betaneo (L), a pharmacy technician for Walgreens, sells medicine at the Walgreens pharmacy to Christine Matthews who was using the insurance she purchased under the Affordable Care Act.

Former New York Times reporter Elisabeth Rosenthal, now the editor-in-chief of Kaiser Health News, talks about unexpected roadblocks in insurance claims under the Affordable Care Act. She'll also discuss her recent article in The New York Times called, "The Lesson of EpiPens: Why Drug Prices Spike, Again and Again,"  and explain why drug companies repeatedly increase the prices of common drugs. 

Elisabeth Rosenthal's book, An American Sickness: How Healthcare Became Big Business and How You Can Take It Back, is out in April, and it's available for pre-order.
