According to Kevin Dahill, EVP of the Healthcare Association of New York State (HANYS), there are now taking place new “energized discussions between the Freedom Caucus and the White House to get a bill back on the floor of Congress this week. Dahill spoke at a WCA All Access Healthcare meeting yesterday that was packed with hospital and other healthcare executives and business leaders. “
