Arguably, one of the most contentious and divisive issues currently facing the facing the federal government is healthcare reform. The Republican party has lobbied for the repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) for years. On May 4th, House Republicans passed the American Health Care Act (AHCA). The Senate has yet to vote on the House measure and leaders have indicated they might produce a different ACA replacement bill.

 

The complexities involved - pre existing conditions; expanded Medicaid; layered networks of payers, providers, and stakeholders; the role of state-by-state policy; who and what is covered; and the role of individual states in making decisions - contribute to the emotional and structural challenge of designing legislation that creates a system that works for everyone.

 

Join us as City Club CEO Dan Moulthrop talks with Cleveland Clinic President and CEO Toby Cosgrove, M.D., and Ohio Governor John Kasich about the current attempts to remake our nation's healthcare system.

 

Tickets: $20 members/$35 nonmembers.

    I'll be at the MetroHealth Pastoral Care Conference about Rejection Oddly enough when we were screening the documentary Reject at Parma High School in May of 2014 the Governor had instructed his assistant to send someone from his office but sadly no one came. I do however wish I could thank him in person for supporting our World Rocks Against Dementia Days this past March. Sure this will be another amazing City Club event.
