White House Health Care Summit Wrap-Up

After a day-long discussion at Blair House on Thursday, the White House Bipartisan Health Care Summit ended without a decisive compromise on the future of Health System Reform. Preceding the Summit, President Obama released his proposal for Health System Reform which can be viewed here.

Republicans and Democrats at the Summit discussed the President’s proposal and their own bills, specifically focusing discussion on the cost of healthcare to families and to the government, insurance market reform, Medicare, tort reform and the SGR formula.
