According to poll after poll, consumers’ top concern is healthcare—specifically, consumers want policymakers to address the affordability of healthcare.  A particular patient grievance is the bizarre range of prices—all of them unaffordable.

This webinar will feature two investigative journalists—a regional reporter and a podcaster—who have reported on the murky healthcare prices that befuddle patients and policymakers alike. Our panelists will describe their stories that exposed and explained how healthcare prices are set. The panel will then discuss the role of media coverage in addressing our dysfunctional healthcare system. As always, we’ll have plenty of time for your questions.
