Apr 18, 2013

Bipartisan Policy Center

The Bipartisan Policy Center’s (BPC) Health Care Cost Containment Initiative will release a comprehensive set of proposals on how the United States can contain its growing health care costs on a system-wide basis, while enhancing health care quality and value. They published their findings and full report on Thursday, April 18, 2013. The report briefing featured Senator Tom Daschle, Senator Pete Domenici, Senator Bill Frist, Alice Rivlin and PGPF President Michael A. Peterson.

The report is the culmination of a year-long process by a team of health and budget policy leaders from both sides of the aisle. This unique group of experts meticulously reviewed and evaluated the most promising strategies for confronting health care costs and assessed the financial impact of the proposals over the near-and long-term in an effort to improve the quality of care delivered to millions of Americans, while addressing federal deficits and the debt. The report also offers new cost estimates analyzed by independent analysts.
