Ep. 20 - Oh so long COVID and new religious objections to Obamacare


This week on the FLATLINING Podcast, Ron and Matthew discuss long COVID and its potential effect on the US labor force and a new ruling on the Affordable Care Act. They answer these questions:

  • Will long COVID have an effect on the US workforce?

  • Should long COVID be classified as a disability?

  • Why is some preventative care free and who decides?

  • Can religious employers object to preventative care mandated under the Affordable Care Act?

  • How does the new ACA ruling affect other areas of healthcare?

  • Will the No Surprises Act cause more emergency room visits?
