Medicare-the country's public health insurance program for people over the age of 65 and those with permanent disabilities-is a constant topic of debate in Washington. The upcoming 50th anniversary of Medicare has reignited the discussion about the program and its future among policymakers and care providers alike. At the heart of the matter: how to provide the country's aging population affordable, quality care while ensuring the financial sustainability of the Medicare program for future generations.
Join National Journal for a policy forum that will convene the nation's key opinion leaders for a robust discussion about the future of Medicare. We will explore questions such as: What impact will the Affordable Care Act's payment and delivery system reforms have on the Medicare program in the years ahead? What changes need to be made to Medicare to guarantee its solvency? What role will value based care and reimbursement have on Medicare's future? How should the program engage with care providers to deliver the most efficient, effective care? And as Medicare's 50th anniversary approaches, what's next for the program?
