With Funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Altarum Center for Sustainable Health Spending Presents

Sustainable U.S. Health Spending in the Next Administration

As the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and a strengthening economy continue to expand health insurance coverage, health spending growth has trended above its recent historic lows. To what extent has this imperiled longer-term sustainability and what should the next Administration do about cost control? We invite you to attend this fifth Robert Wood Johnson Foundation-funded symposium coming 4 months before the presidential election. It will update health politics and divergent policy choices, discuss health care and resultant fiscal pressures, and peer into the future health spending trends.
