Can Employer-Sponsored Health Insurance Be Saved? Exploring Solutions to the Affordability Crisis
Tuesday, October 3, 2023
8:30 AM – 10:00 AM
Georgetown University Law Center
500 1st St NW, Washington, DC 20001
Nearly half of the adults and children in the U.S. receive their health insurance through an employer-based plan, but as health care costs rise uncontrollably, coverage is becoming increasingly unaffordable for workers and their families, putting the care they need out of reach. Employers acting alone aren’t able to reverse this affordability crisis: policy change is needed, but assessing which policies will work is challenging.
Join Georgetown’s Center on Health Insurance Reforms for the first in a series of in-person policy briefings on the future of employer-sponsored insurance. Moderated by Sarah Kliff from The New York Times and featuring a panel discussion with policymakers and health insurance experts, the event will spotlight state cost containment policies and employer strategies to inform the federal policy process. Audience Q&A will follow the discussion.
