About This Event
At the event, a panel of health care experts will discuss alternative strategies. Dr. Nirav R. Shah will discuss Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s Medicaid reforms, which achieved more than $4 billion in savings in one year while improving quality of care and increasing enrollment by 154,000 people. Dr. Herbert Pardes will compare and contrast different cost containment strategies and their impacts on hospitals and health care providers. Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel and Maura Calsyn will provide a federal perspective and discuss the Center’s Senior Protection Plan in anticipation of the looming “fiscal cliff.” The Senior Protection Plan is the Center’s contribution to the debate over entitlement reform and federal health care savings. It would produce federal savings of about $385 billion over ten years and includes a number of reforms to bend the cost curve over the long term.
Please join us as we discuss strategies to rein in health care costs, lead a discussion of the issues, and answer your questions.
