The IRA is Law.  What Comes Next?

Tuesday, October 18, 2022

8:00 am – 9:00 am on Zoom


On August 12, 2022, Congress sent the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 (IRA) to President Joe Biden for signature into law.  The IRA is a 755-page bill that has three primary focus areas: healthcare, climate, and taxes.  The legislation passed on party lines with the Democrats in unified support and the Republicans in unified opposition. During the reconciliation process, Democratic speakers extolled the good intentions of the IRA programs and the Republicans opined on the unintended consequences.

In this one hour session, we will explore:

  • The provisions of the IRA that impact the Health Innovation Ecosystem
  • Unintended consequences of this public policy that are emerging
  • What comes next…
