Getting Medicare Right

10:00 - 11:00 AM EDT

Medicare policy has risen to the top of the congressional agenda this year. Health care reform is gaining support in Washington, D.C. and in many places around the country. Given the size of Medicare, changes made in that program can not only affect beneficiaries but also have a very large impact on health care policy across the board. Key elements in getting Medicare right include eliminating the overpayments to Medicare Advantage plans and reforming Medicare fee-for-service.

Following the welcome and introduction from Cassandra Butts, Senior Vice President for Domestic Policy at the Center for American Progress, Bill Novelli, CEO of AARP will give remarks regarding Medicare Advantage plans and Medicare fee-for-service. The discussion will close with questions from the audience.
