Health Coverage Revisited: A Fund/Alliance for Health Reform Briefing

At a March 19, 2007 briefing cosponsored by The Commonwealth Fund and the Alliance for Health Reform, experts gathered to discuss proposed approaches for expanding health care coverage, including: opening up the Federal Employees Health Benefits Plan (FEHBP) to more people; offering tax incentives to help small businesses offer coverage to their employees, or to individuals so they can buy coverage on their own; encouraging states to innovate; mandating individual health insurance coverage; and adopting a government-sponsored health insurance system similar to Medicare.

Now, a Commonwealth Fund E-Forum offers synched slides and audio from presentations from the following speakers:

  • Karen Davis, The Commonwealth Fund;
  • Henry Aaron, the Brookings Institution;
  • Katherine Baicker, the President's Council of Economic Advisors, and;
  • Dallas Salisbury, the Employee Benefit Research Institute.

Ed Howard of the Alliance moderated the session.
