CAHC’s 3rd Annual Price of Good Health Summit

January 16, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm

January 16, 2020 | The Spy Museum, Washington, DC

The U.S. health sector will take in more than $50 trillion over the next decade alone, with costs expected to increase faster than wages and inflation. In fact, the medical cost trend is growing so rapidly, within 10 years the typical family will spend 40 percent of their income on healthcare. From surprise medical bills, debates over the Affordable Care Act and “Medicare for All,” to the march toward value-based care and efforts to improve prescription drug affordability, health policy to lower costs remains a primary focus of Congress, the administration, and the public.

Please join the Council for Affordable Health Coverage to answer the question, what is the “Price of Good Health”. Our goal will be to unearth the factors driving up health costs and develop the solutions to help reverse the cost trend.

Featured Speakers Include FTC Commissioner Christine S. Wilson; Congressman Ami Bera, MD (D-Ca); HHS Chief Data Officer Mona Siddiqui, MD; Microsoft CTO Kerri Lynn Primmer Morris, and Ryan Foundation Executive Director Mark Dant.
