03-04-2024 • 25 mins

Step into the world of healthcare reform with the unique perspective of Congressman Earl "Buddy" Carter, a pharmacist serving in Congress, whose career has taken him from the quaint town of Pooler's mayoral office to the halls of the U.S. Capitol as Georgia's 1st District Representative. Delve into a conversation that traverses the landscape of healthcare legislation, as we dissect Carter's contributions on the Energy and Commerce and Budget Committees, and the transformative bills he passionately supports. The Lower Cost, More Cures Act and the Saving Our Students in Schools Act take center stage, revealing a behind-the-scenes look at their implications and the legislative journey from conception to enactment.

Hear how the government shapes the trajectory of healthcare services through the levers of Medicare and Medicaid, alongside the burgeoning telehealth revolution that promises to redefine rural healthcare access. Congressman Carter sheds light on the imperative for high-speed internet to support telehealth innovations and the legislative efforts in motion to combat maternal mortality through the Healthy Moms and Babies Act. As we unravel the threads of bipartisan legislation, such as the Emergency Medical Services for Children Reauthorization Act, it becomes clear how collective efforts across the aisle can forge pathways to superior emergency care for our youngest citizens. Join us for an episode that not only informs but ignites a dialogue on the future of healthcare policy.
