Washington, D.C. — In the five years since the passage of the Affordable Care Act, or ACA, the U.S. health care system has seen a dramatic expansion of health insurance coverage, historically slow growth in health care costs, and striking improvements in the quality of patient care.
On Thursday, April 2, the Center for American Progress will host Jason Furman, chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers, to discuss the implications of the ACA for jobs, incomes, and the nation’s fiscal future. Furman will also discuss the Obama administration’s ongoing efforts to shift America’s health care delivery system toward payment models that reward doctors and hospitals that provide high-quality, efficient health care and how these efforts will help ensure that recent progress on health care costs and quality continues.
