A full conference agenda is available for download HERE. CAHC President Joel White and AAF President Douglas Holtz-Eakin released the following statements:
“We partnered with American Action Forum to convene the Price of Good Health summit because we believed there was a need for policymakers, industry leaders, and other stakeholders to come together, look beyond the immediate challenges over the Affordable Care Act, and engage in an honest dialogue about the underlying drivers of, and solutions to address, growing health care costs," said CAHC President Joel White. "This won’t be a time for partisan politics, but instead will be a substantive, policy-focused slate of panels and remarks that we hope will be a catalyst for meaningful reforms to lower the cost of health care for all consumers."
"The rapid growth in health care costs is one of our most fundamental policy challenges," said AAF President Douglas Holtz-Eakin. "The American Action Forum is pleased to partner with the Council for Affordable Health Coverage in hosting a bipartisan group of health policy leaders for this much-needed discussion regarding real, sustainable policy solutions."
The Price of Good Health Summit is open to media and speakers will take questions. Seating is limited. Please RSVP here to ensure space for our invited guests.
