The GOP effort to repeal and replace Obamacare is picking up steam again as the Senate works on its bill behind closed doors. How to keep track of it all? Here are a few folks to follow on Twitter:

The Legal Eagle: @RESachs

Rachel Sachs is an associate professor of law at Washington University in St. Louis. She works at the intersection of health, law, and innovation, and in her Twitter feed often talks about the effect of health policy on access and affordability. She also writes an occasional column for STAT.


The Doctor-Politician: @BillCassidy

Sen. Bill Cassidy of Louisiana is not just the author of an alternative to AHCA, but a doctor himself. Yet, he wasn’t part of the Mitch McConnell-led group of senators working on the Senate version of the bill. Expect him to have a lot to say once the CBO score comes out. In meantime, learn more about him here.

  • Missing @charles_Gaba supreme data wonk on ACA is inexcusable. And it may be professional jealousy but Vox’s @sarahkliff & HuffPos @citizencohn are best health policy journalists in the US

    • Matthew Holt, thank you for adding Charles Gaba, he is a must read.
      I also like: @shrivercenter, @annaedney,
      @emma_sandhoe, @ChadBown,
      and @wcsanders. I know there are others I follow that are local to me, and I’m sure I’ve forgotten a few others, unintentionally.

      But this list is great, very helpful, especially since I avoid lists on twitter.
