Former senators join forces for healthcare reform
The project will hold four forums will be held throughout the year, each one hosted by a different former senator. Each forum will address an important topic in healthcare reform: preserving and improving quality and value of care; providing affordable, accessible coverage choices in a reformed insurance market; ensuring and promoting a strong individual role in health care coverage and costs; and securing a workable financing mechanism for health care.
Recommendations from the group will be given to the public, Congress and the administration after the election of a new president. The leaders will direct the project with help from healthcare policy experts, including Mark McClellan, former administrator of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
