Policy Beat, a weekly production of the NMA Office of Health Policy, is a collection of PowerPoint slides that provide a week-in-review of the health policy environment. Each issue contains health care headlines, weekly news summaries, explanations of complex health reform topics, and a “what you can do” section. Policy Beat is distributed via email each week on Fridays.
