Health care policy is one of the major issues of the Presidential and congressional campaigns, but the language can often be too dense to understand. This is why NPR Health Policy Correspondent Julie Rovner has updated her guidebook, Healthcare Policy and Politics A to Z. In it, she has explanations for more than 300 key concepts to demystify health care policy - and tricky concepts like Medicare, SCHIP, abstinence education and abortion. She'll also talk about the health care plans presented by the presidential candidates.
