Changing the way we pay for health care and making it more affordable is the single most complicated public policy challenge we face. Though the issue of cost has always weighed on lawmakers, the economic and health care crisis from COVID-19 adds a level of urgency that can no longer be ignored.
Join Governors John Kitzhaber, Jack Markell, and experts for a discussion on how to reform paying for health care. The coronavirus pandemic has had profound social and economic consequences but it also has moved the national health care debate beyond the narrow focus on universal coverage, to a larger question of how to address the disparities which underlie disease.
We will discuss recent research published by PPI and in The Hill on how to refocus the conversation around increasing the value of care delivered and reducing the total cost of health care.
