Is Obamacare Taking America in the Right Direction? With former U.S. Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle
Friday, November 7, 1:00 - 2:15 PM, Cowles Auditorium, Humphrey School of Public Affairs

Register now!

The hex of high costs, unmet needs, and uneven quality has cursed American health care for decades. In 2010, President Obama signed into law the Affordable Care Act with the aim of expanding coverage, bending the cost curve downward, and improving the quality of care for many. How has it performed? Can Obamacare be improved and attract broader support, or should America start over? Join us for a conversation with former U.S. Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle about the current state of affairs in health care, moderated by former U.S. Congressman Vin Weber. This event is part of the Vin Weber Lecture Series.

Register now!

MNsure expanded coverage and reduced the ranks of the uninsured during its first year of enrollment but will its second push to enroll Minnesotans beginning on November 15th be easier for consumers and more effective? Will the troubled sign-up and processing of applications become more satisfying to consumers? Most of the enrollment in 2014 was in public programs; will enrollment in private insurance – one of MNsure's primary purposes – be substantially increased in 2015? How can MNsure become financially self-sufficient? Featuring Joel Ario, Managing Director, Manatt Health Solutions; Julie Brunner, Executive Director, Minnesota Council of Health Plans; Scott Leitz, CEO, MNsure; and Christopher Snowbeck, Health Care Business Reporter, Star Tribune. The conversation will be moderated by Professor Larry Jacobs. Co-sponsored with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota.
