U.S. hospitals have merged and consolidated with increasing frequency, in a trend that tends to increase costs without compensating advantages in access or quality of care. Two national experts join us to discuss the ramifications: 

Roger Feldman, PhD, Blue Cross Professor of Health Insurance Emeritus and Professor of Economics Emeritus at the University of Minnesota

Deborah Haas-Wilson, PhD, MA, Marilyn Carlson Nelson Professor of Economics at Smith  

These speakers are experienced researchers on provider concentration and have been on the front lines of enforcement. You will hear an authoritative discussion of what we know and what we can do about it. Join us!
