Health Care Symposium: Health Reform - Where Are We, Where Are We Going?

Nov. 18, 2016, 10:00 a.m.

Approximately nine out of 10 Americans now have health insurance, more than at any other time in history, but millions remain uninsured, quality is uneven, costs are high and trending upward and Medicare’s insolvency is two years closer, now projected to be in 2028. So the challenge is, how can we make the best health care in the world accessible and affordable to those who need it while not reducing quality, raising costs, or imposing a regulatory burden that stifles innovation?

The UVA Center for Health Policy and Powers PC co-sponsor a timely symposium on health reform on Capitol Hill. Speakers include Batten professors Michael D. Williams, Mimi Riley, Brooke Lehman and Christopher Ruhm. Other speakers include Christine Eibner, RAND Corporation; Bob Berenson, Urban Institute; Kevin Counihan, US HHS; Margaret Tracci, UVA School of Medicine; and Mary Margaret Frank, UVA Darden School of Business.

10 a.m. - 2 p.m., 325 Russell Senate Office Building
