The Future of Employer-Provided Health Care
Recorded on June 9, 2009
Location: The Heritage Foundation's Allison Auditorium
There is little disagreement the current health care system
needs an overhaul. The U.S. spends over $2.4 trillion dollars
annually on health care and costs have doubled since 2000 for
employer-based family coverage. Options are shrinking.
Most agree reform is needed but the debate lies with two
competing ideals for the future of health care. One is where
Washington controls financing and delivery and is seen as the
solution, not the problem; while the other contends individuals and
families are the best judge of how to spend healthcare dollars.
In the middle lie employers and Congress. Please join us for an
event addressing the future of reform and how this will impact
employee provided health care.
