Please join us as an outstanding group of leading health care experts discuss strategies for improving the affordability of health care and coverage – for employers, patients and families, and public programs, including Medicare, Medicaid, and ACA marketplaces.

We will examine the underlying causes of escalating health care costs — and a wide range of options for cutting costs while increasing the quality of care. Among the topics:

  • how to improve the coordination, delivery, and efficiency of care;
  • how to make markets for insurance and health care services more competitive and efficient;
  • how to slow the rates of increase in prescription drug prices;
  • how to provide better and more efficient care to high-need, high-cost patients; and
  • how to reduce the demand for care by decreasing and treating unhealthy behaviors.


  • Gerard E. Anderson – Professor of Health Policy and Management, Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health, and Director, Johns Hopkins Center for Hospital Finance and Management
  • Joseph Antos — Wilson H. Taylor Scholar in Health Care and Retirement Policy, American Enterprise Institute
  • Larry Boress – President and CEO, Midwest Business Group on Health
  • Donald Lurye, MD – President, Illinois Academy of Family Physicians
  • Joseph Minarik – Senior Vice President and Director of Research, Committee for Economic Development
  • Jason Perrott – Management of Healthcare Strategy and Policy, The Boeing Company

  • Trish Riley – Executive Director, National Academy for State Health Policy
