The U.S. Supreme Court has rendered a historic decision on President Obama’s signature national health-care legislation, affecting the “individual mandate,” the Medicaid expansions and the entire sweeping law.

Learn what the decision means for individuals, providers, insurance companies, drug and medical device makers and employers by joining Foley Hoag partner Thomas Barker, who will examine and explain the ruling.


Thomas Barker is former acting General Counsel at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and General Counsel of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).


Tom will examine the impact of the decision and predict congressional reaction in the context of the upcoming presidential election. He will explore the implications – including taxes and fees – for employers, providers, pharmaceutical and medical device companies, insurers and others.
