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.
