Public Options for Employers: A Panel Discussion

January 21st, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Event Description

The American health care system struggles to meet the needs of all citizens, and opinions are split on how to improve health care in the United States to meet these needs. Two major health policy reform ideas have emerged: Medicare for All and incremental expansion of health care built on the successes of the Affordable Care Act. Neither of these ideas are universally agreed on; however, change is needed to create productive and fundamental improvements in the American health care system. Join us on January 21st for a discussion of these options and how the American health care system can be improved.
