Recap: New Report Envisions More Cost-Effective Health Care System

The United States spends more on health care than any other country and yet tens of millions of Americans are facing uncoordinated and costly medical care. With health care spending expected to continue to grow for the foreseeable future and with the nation’s growing federal deficit and debt, system-wide health care cost containment is both a critical component of any long term deficit reduction strategy and urgently needed to ensure the sustainability of our health care system.

The Bipartisan Policy Center’s (BPC) Health Care Cost Containment Initiative released its report identifying the most promising health care policy recommendations that will both contain cost growth and enhance value throughout the health care system. Led by a bipartisan group of four distinguished health and economic policy leaders, the initiative engages a broad array of experts, policymakers and stakeholders to identify the best opportunities to confront the unprecedented growth of health care costs while preserving the highest quality of care for all Americans and avoiding cost-shifting wherever possible.
