2013 Health Care Summit
Health Care in America:
What’s Working, What’s Not Working and What’s Yet to be Done
From September 15-17, 2013, SLLF and the Johns Hopkins University Medical school convened the third annual Health Care Summit in Baltimore, Maryland. The focus was on the fiscal and economic impacts of health care and health insurance across the country and preparation for the implementation of significant pieces of the Affordable Care Act in 2014.
Program participants also looked at states’ experiences setting up health insurance exchanges and explored more deeply the decision of more than half the states not to establish these exchanges. Participants considered what alternative policy solutions these states proposed to address the growing costs of care and the urgent healthcare needs of their constituents.
