Georgetown Research Center Helps Reporters Decipher Health Reform Law & Impact on State Residents
Date:5/10/2010

The Georgetown University Center for Children and Families, an independent, nonpartisan research institute, is offering state and local reporters assistance in analyzing how the new health reform law will impact residents of their states. The New York Times has called Georgetown's CCF "a great clearinghouse of information about health care issues for children and families."

Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) May 10, 2010 -- About 55 percent of Americans say they are confused about the new health reform law and more than half say they don't yet have enough information to understand how it will affect them personally according to recent polls. Many Americans are turning to their state and local media outlets to learn about health reform.

The Georgetown University Center for Children and Families, an independent, nonpartisan research institute, is offering state and local reporters assistance in analyzing how the new health reform law will impact residents of their states. The New York Times has called Georgetown's CCF "a great clearinghouse of information about health care issues for children and families."

"The American health care system is complex and making changes to it will not be as straightforward as you might expect," said CCF Co-Director Jocelyn Guyer. "CCF's staff has years of experience in researching and analyzing state and national health coverage regulations and trends and are happy to share their expertise with reporters."

CCF has posted several resources to assist reporters in delving deeper into health reform as the impetus for action shifts from Washington to the states. They help answer such questions as:

What's in the new law for children and families in my state?

Which benefits are available now and which ones won't be available until 2014?

How will health reform impact state budgets?

What actions should state policymakers be taking now to implement health reform?    

Reporters are invited to contact the health reform policy experts at Georgetown's Center for Children and Families to learn more about the new law and its impact on their states by contacting Cathy Hope at (202) 687-0880.
