M-RCBG Senior Fellow-Led Study Group: Eric Evans
Tuesday, November 1, 4:30-6:00pm M-RCBG Conference Room (B-503)
U.S. Health Insurance: What is it? How does it work? Who pays what to whom?
At this study group, Eric J Evans, M-RCBG Senior Fellow, and Edward E. Berger, Principal at Larchmont Strategic Advisors will lead a discussion on how the U.S. health Insurance system works.
What is public and what is private? How did we get there? How is it determined who pays how much to whom? How does the system accommodate advances in medicine and provide the right incentives to all parties?
This event is open to all. Registration is not required.
