Health Care Reform: Creating A Sustainable Health Care Marketplace
A Report to Business Roundtable By Hewitt Associates
This report addresses four key questions:

- What missing ingredients should be added to current proposals to enhance their potential to reduce future cost trends?
- What are the risks that could undermine the realization of these cost savings?
- What can be done longer-term to restructure the current health care delivery system in order to reduce annual health care cost trend to a sustainable rate, such as the overall rate of GDP growth (approximately 4% per year)?
