About the Project

The Health Project is committed to developing bipartisan policy recommendations that will improve health care quality, lower costs, and enhance health care coverage and delivery.

In the next two decades, the U.S. health care system will face a tidal wave of aging baby boomers. This, among many other factors, will create an unsustainable demand for LTSS in the coming years.
