WASHINGTON, September 30, 2009 -- As the debate over health care reform has escalated, nonprofit health insurance cooperatives have been touted 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? Experts in the health cooperative field will discuss and debate these and other questions.
Lunch will be served.
