The 2016 Elections and the Future of U.S. Healthcare - What Does the 2016 Election Mean for the Healthcare Industry?
Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck Shareholder Mike King moderated a discussion on the future of healthcare within the context of the 2016 election, a topic often overlooked during the year’s election discussion. With health care costs representing 18 percent of the U.S. economy and one candidate promising to repeal the Affordable Care Act, the stakes for health care have never been higher. Convened by Brownstein’s Health Care group, the panel brought together experts across the industry to discuss policy, business and legal topics. Speakers included the Brownstein Policy Director Cate McCanless and Strategic Advisor Barry Jackson along with Quadriga Managing Partner Jason Ficken and Colorado Lieutenant Governor and former Kaiser Permanente CEO Donna Lynne.
