Event Details

As Washington continues to search for long-term solutions to reduce federal spending, with Medicare often at the forefront of these discussions, the Kaiser Family Foundation will hold a policy briefing Wednesday, Jan. 30, at 9:30 a.m. to explore options that could be considered to reduce Medicare spending, and their implications for beneficiaries.

Kaiser Family Foundation CEO Drew Altman will provide opening remarks. The briefing will feature a panel discussion with three former Medicare administrators –Mark McClellan of the Brookings Institution, Bruce Vladeck of Nexera, Inc. and Gail Wilensky of Project HOPE – to offer their insights on both the challenges facing Medicare and potential directions for future reforms.  A second panel will feature Medicare policy experts Joseph Antos of the American Enterprise Institute, Robert Berenson of the Urban Institute, Marilyn Moon of the American Institutes of Research, and Earl Steinberg of the Geisinger Health System, who will share their perspectives about various approaches under consideration to achieve Medicare savings, and the potential implications for beneficiaries, providers and the federal budget.  Foundation Medicare experts Tricia Neuman and Juliette Cubanski will moderate the panel discussions.


Registration and breakfast at 9:00 a.m.


The event in the Foundation's Washington, D.C. office is open to the public.
