Talking Health Webcast: Insured But Still at Risk

Placeholder Image For Talking Health Webcast: Insured But Still at Risk

A new series of health-related webcasts for journalists debuted last week with a spotlight on the growing problem of the underinsured--people who have insurance but are still at risk for substantial out-of-pocket expenses. Talking Health is presented by the Association of Health Care Journalists, The Commonwealth Fund, and the City University of New York Graduate School of Journalism. The program featured panelists Sara R. Collins, Ph.D., an assistant vice president at The Commonwealth Fund; Helen Darling, president of the National Business Group on Health; and Mila Kofman, Maine's superintendent of insurance. In a special feature of the webcast, two journalists, Julie Appleby of USA Today and Reed Abelson of the New York Times, offered suggestions and ideas for reporters based on the information discussed by the panelists. AHCJ board president Trudy Lieberman moderated both sessions.
