Over $2.6 Trillion is spent on healthcare in the United States (approximately 18% of the U.S. Economic Output) and the average cost of a family health insurance premium is now over $15,000 per year. Healthcare is not only about health, but increasingly about finance. This session will characterize the key actors in the healthcare system (patients, payers, insurers and providers), the affects that health reform will have on the system, and the key information that individuals should consider when selecting health insurance plans or using health services or products.
