Policy Prescriptions for Cost & Coverage

From delaying medical care and putting off doctor visits, to struggling to access adequate services ‒ health care in the traditional sense had largely been put on hold during the COVID-19 pandemic.
But now, as vaccines bring hope that the nation may soon begin to emerge from this crisis, longstanding concerns will have to be addressed. High out-of-pocket costs and surprise medical bills remain a top challenge for patients, as does the ability to access quality health insurance that meets their needs. 

How can we bring patient-centered solutions to the health care system and ensure its resiliency?
The Hill newspaper sat down with policymakers, health care experts and patient advocates for a conversation about envisioning the post-pandemic picture of health care.
