Health insurance is key to accessing and affording health care in our country. Yet, many Utahns remain uncovered, and those with health care coverage may still face high premiums and health care costs — particularly when faced with a medical emergency or chronic condition.
National and state policy leaders have attempted to address these problems for years, but reform is not easy. So, what can be done?
In the latest installment of The Salt Lake Tribune’s “Storytelling through Data” event series, author, economist and MacAuthur Genius Grant winner Amy Finkelstein will discuss her book “We’ve Got You Covered” — a lively and provocative proposal for health insurance reform.
In a conversation moderated by Tribune Executive Editor Lauren Gustus, Finkelstein will join a panel of local health care experts, including health economist and professor Allison Witman and Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute Director of Industry Research Laura Summers.
This conversation will take place on Monday, Feb. 26 from noon to 1:30 p.m. at the Thomas S. Monson Center — 411 East South Temple Street, Salt Lake City, Utah 84111. A light lunch will be provided.
The event is free, but space is limited. Please RSVP here.
