DR. LAWRENCE SPEAKS ON CAPITOL HILL ABOUT PUBLIC THINKING ON RISING COST OF HEALTH CARE

On June 19, Dr. Lawrence briefed Senate Staffers and the Department of Health and Human Services about the findings from the national report just released concerning public thinking on the rising cost of health care. Dr. Lawrence emphasized four main recommendations in her briefings, including (1) the public’s need for clearer information on policy alternatives, (2) the public's interest in policy alternatives that have three underlying values at their core, around which the public has common ground, including equity, knowledge/education, and quality; (3) the public’s call for more opportunities to weigh in on these more clearly defined policy options; and (4) the public’s desire for strong leadership on health care reform.
