US health care markets have become more concentrated over the last decade. How should policymakers ensure that the forces of competition will improve the cost and quality of health care?

Traditional antitrust enforcement tools have done little to halt extraordinary consolidation in local hospital markets, and the Affordable Care Act may encourage other health care providers and insurers to grow larger as well. Our expert panel will examine the current state of US health care competition and review policy reform options.

If you are unable to attend, we welcome you to watch the event live on this page. Full video will be posted within 24 hours.
