The Manhattan Institute and the American Action Forum will host an event examining the current state of the health care system and potential reforms that policymakers can undertake to improve it. The results of the recent election make changes to the Affordable Care Act more likely, and any effort to alter the law will involve significant policy and political challenges. We’ll address the merits of the repeal/replace effort, how policymakers should address rising premiums, and the impact of proposed policy changes on the economy, patients, and providers. Please join us for a robust discussion on the future of health care in the United States.
