We now have two-and-a-half years experience with the Affordable Care Act (ACA) or, as the President calls it, ObamaCare. During the debate in 2009 proponents told the American people to expect many benefits from the law in the following years.
The Congressional Budget Office reports that the health care cost crisis now threatens the U.S. economy. Whether through market forces or government intervention, wrenching changes are ahead for health care. These changes will be promising for some local companies and painful to many; none will go untouched. An understanding of the issues is important for every business leader.
The Executive MBA Program at UW's Foster School of Business has partnered with Premera Blue Cross to offer a day of insights. WPC's Center for Health Care is pleased to co-present this discussion.
