WASHINGTON, October 5 -- With health cooperatives as an alternative to the public option in Senator Baucus' health bill -- slated for a final vote this week -- Hudson Institute is convening a panel to examine this topic.
Group health cooperatives have played a small but unheralded role in the American health care system. How do they work? Can they increase choice and competition, as well as control costs?
Please join us for lunch, as we discuss these issues.
