Covid-19 is an unprecedented crisis that has redirected our policy and healthcare bandwidth to unanticipated activities and profoundly engaged the public. The crisis has also caused us to question our policy priorities and our preparedness. But as past crisis have taught us, this new policy openness could have potentially lasting effects, reinforcing the necessity of getting our Covid-19 policy response right.   

In this webinar, a wide ranging set of experts will step through the issues of emergency preparedness and disparate effects on vulnerable populations; discuss our new appreciation for coverage and the role of cost-sharing, and generally seek to ensure that our new policy openness has a lasting, positive impact on Americans.
