Join Altarum's Healthcare Value Hub for two panels discussing policy recommendations to make healthcare more affordable and current state efforts to craft a “healthcare affordability standard” to measure progress.

For years, polling data has shown that healthcare affordability is the number one issue that Americans, on both sides of the political aisle, want elected officials to address. Until recently, however, state policymakers lacked a clearly defined menu of policy options to inform legislative change. Efforts to make healthcare “affordable” are further complicated by a lack of agreement about how healthcare affordability should be measured. But that is starting to change.
