October 6, 2009, 12:00PM-2:00PM - Hudson Institute, Washington, D.C. Headquarters
Hudson's Center for Science in Public Policy
held a conference on
A Viable Alternative to a Public Plan?
October 6th, 2009
Noon - 2:00pm
As the debate over health care reform has escalated, nonprofit health insurance cooperatives have been proposed as an alternative to a government-run health insurance option. Group health cooperatives have long been a part of the American health care landscape. What do we know about how they work? Can they achieve the important objectives of health care reform by increasing choice and competition and controlling costs of health care services?
