Replacing Obamacare and Curing the Healthcare Crisis
Thursday, October 4, 2012 from 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM (PDT)
Should the new healthcare law be repealed and replaced? If so, which reforms would contribute the
most to making high-quality healthcare affordable and accessible?
In Priceless: Curing the Healthcare Crisis, Dr. John C. Goodman takes the Affordable Care Act
(ACA) to task, rejects the Obama vision, and offers a no-nonsense approach to healthcare reform.
To create a vibrant market that would treat the sick—in which health plans compete to solve the
problems of diabetics, asthmatics, heart patients, cancer patients, and others with high expected
healthcare costs—Dr. Goodman maintains that we must undo the bad incentives and constraints
that are embedded in the current system and made worse by the ACA. Along with practical advice on
how employers can cut employee health costs in half, Dr. Goodman will discuss insurance reform,
malpractice, and the innovative ideas found in Priceless for overhauling Medicare and Medicaid.
