Webcast on Public Insurance Plan Option

A May 1 webcast in the "Talking Health" series, presented by the Association of Health Care Journalists (AHCJ), The Commonwealth Fund, and the City University of New York Graduate School of Journalism, focused on one of the most controversial aspects of the health reform debate: whether employers and individuals should have the option to obtain health insurance through a public plan that is similar to Medicare. It featured two health policy experts: Cathy Schoen, senior vice president for research and evaluation at The Commonwealth Fund, and Bruce M. Bullen, chief operating officer of Harvard Pilgrim Health Care. Two journalist experts, Noam Levey, a reporter in the Washington Bureau of the Los Angeles Times, and Ceci Connolly, a staff writer at the Washington Post, offered their insights and suggestions for reporters covering what will be a major story in the coming months. The archived webcast is now available.
