Repeal and Replace? Single-Payer? A Third Way? Finding the Way Forward in Health Care

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Whether it's repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act or moving toward a single-payer system, health care as we know it seems to be on its last legs. How are hospitals coping with all this tumult? What are health insurers doing to keep themselves in business? How will all this affect consumers and the quality of their care? And, finally, what will our health-care industry — one-sixth of our economy — look like in five or 10 years?

Drew Armstrong, Bloomberg’s health and science team leader, will moderate an expert panel to give business journalists insights into this ever-shifting environment. The panelists will be Sara R. Collins, vice president of health-care coverage and access at The Commonwealth Fund; Arthur Gianelli, president of Mount Sinai St. Luke's; Tami Luhby, senior writer at CNN Money; and Richard Miller, executive vice president and chief business strategy officer at Northwell Health.

This session is sponsored by The Commonwealth Fund.
