The Affordable Care Act changed many aspects of the U.S. health care system and extended health insurance to 20 million additional people. What it didn’t do was reduce the cost of health care. In fact, costs are getting worse: some health insurance premiums are increasing by as much as 50 percent.

Today, eight years after President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into law, the legislation continues to be a target.

What’s next for health care reform in U.S.? What did the Affordable Care Act get right, and what did it get wrong? What needs to happen in the short-term? Is there an eventual fix on the horizon? Our panelists will discuss and debate the future of health care in this lively, interactive talk.

The talk is free and open to the public. Validated parking is available on-site. The event can also be streamed online live here.
