Tuesday, October 11, 2016 - 10:30am to 12:00pm

For decades, rising healthcare costs have strained household, employer and government budgets. High prices for drugs, hospital care and more reduce workers’ take-home pay and lead families to skimp on healthcare they need. What’s more, there is unjustified variation in prices and quality, disadvantaging some consumers over others. Finally, the evidence is overwhelming that we are not getting sufficient value for our money. Up to 30 percent of the healthcare services we buy have little or no value.
