The topic of healthcare in the United States can often be politically and emotionally charged. We'll take an analytical look at the shifting directions of healthcare, the current political landscape, and the pressures that everyone will be hearing about over the next 20+ months. We will focus the state of the union on three key fronts: health, healthcare, and health plans. We will also present a high level overview of the major proposals being floated in Washington D.C. to “fix” the healthcare crisis. The session will conclude by discussing the realities of what employers can and cannot do today to address their health plan woes and worries.
