Health care is once again the hot political issue — with managed care at the center of the legislative firestorm. With both Republicans and Democrats proposing increased regulation of HMOs and other forms of managed care, fundamental questions are being raised about the proper role of government in the American health care system. Join us as a panel of top health care experts examines whether managed care needs government regulation and, if so, what kind. Speakers include Sue Blevins, of the Institute for Health Freedom; M. Stanton Evans, of the Education & Research Institute; Alan Mertz, of the Healthcare Leadership Council; and Andrew Webber, of the Consumer Coalition for Quality Health Care.
