Decision 2018: The Intersection of Health Care Policy and Politics
The outcome of the November elections will have significant ramifications for New York State and the health care system. This year’s program “Decision 2018: The Intersection of Health Care Policy and Politics” will examine what impact the mid-term elections will have on national health policy and how it may affect New York’s efforts to expand health coverage, reform the delivery system and contain health care costs. Panel discussions will focus on what are some of the factors contributing to rising health care costs, potential approaches at the state level for containing costs, and how the elections will impact different segments of the health care marketplace in New York. Futurist Jim Carroll also will provide insights into the major scientific, technological, consumer and social trends that will allow for some very dramatic changes in how health care is delivered.
