Cost, Quality and Care: The Medicare Equation

  • The Newseum 555 Pennsylvania Avenue Northwest Washington, DC, 20001 United States (map)

RSVP

Over 60 million Americans rely on Medicare for their health needs. Forty three million are enrolled in Medicare Part D, the prescription drug benefit program.

Since Part D was launched just over a decade ago, medical innovations have dramatically improved patient outcomes. Is the program keeping pace with the science? Are new proposals to lower costs and increase flexibility and choice likely to work? What needs to be done to effectively link cost with quality of care?

On June 25th, health industry leaders, patient advocates and health policy experts join The Hill to examine how drug costs can be brought down for Medicare patients while ensuring continued quality of care for those who depend on the program.
