For years people have acknowledged that there is a cost shift between public and private payers. Some believe that it needs to be corrected by public payers paying more of their fair share of costs of delivering healthcare relieving the burden assumed to be placed on commercial payers. Or is there another way to think about it? Join us on Thursday June 15th from 1:00-2:00 pm ET for a roundtable discussion on the cost shift conundrum facing our nation.

During this Getting to Affordability (G2A) Community Classroom Mylia Christensen, Executive Director, Oregon Health Care Quality Corporation and HealthInsight Oregon and Louise Probst, Executive Director, Midwest Health Initiative and St. Louis Area Business Health Coalition will sit down with NRHI CEO Elizabeth Mitchell, and other thought leaders to discuss the past and future thinking around cost shift. How will historical beliefs influence the future of healthcare affordability?

G2A Community Classrooms provide an opportunity to hear how other regions across the country are addressing healthcare affordability in their local community. These free virtual events are hosted by the Network for Regional Healthcare Improvement’s (NRHI) Getting to Affordability project team and are open to anyone who is interested in working collaboratively within their community to address affordability.
