Event description
Medicare-for-All is on the political agenda. Yet shifting how we pay for health care is a major task. How do we best design & implement M4A?

About this Event

Single payer / Medicare-for-All is newly on the national political agenda. Two leading Democratic presidential candidates support it. Yet transforming how we pay for health care is a major task. If Medicare-for-All is adopted, how can we best design it to achieve universal coverage, high quality care, and affordability?

In this colloquium, we gather leaders in Medicare-for-All design from the U.S. along with international health system experts. The discussion will review current plans in Congress and from candidates, and will highlight the best approaches and trickiest issues in implementing Medicare-for-All.

Speakers include:

Emmanuel Saez PhD, Professor of Economics, Director, Center for Equitable Growth, U.C. Berkeley

Jeffrey D. Sachs PhD, University Professor and Director of the Center for Sustainable Development at Columbia University (by video).

David U. Himmelstein MD and Stephanie J. Woolhandler MD, Distinguished Professors, City University of New York at Hunter College; Lecturers, Harvard Medical School; co-founders of Physicians for a National Health Program.

Joseph Kutzin, Lead, Health Financing Team, World Health Organization
