This event is the first in the Beyond Repeal and Replace series--an AEI project that aims to provide a deeper, more fundamental foundation for policymakers considering a different path to real health reform. Project website: www.aei.org/repealandreplace


What could replace the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) enacted last March? With the new Republican majority in the House committed to repealing PPACA, four noted health policy analysts will present their distinct and detailed proposal at this inaugural Beyond Repeal and Replace AEI event:

• Scott Harrington will address key elements of the new federal regulatory regime for health insurance that misdiagnose the causes of current problems and worsen them through top-down political controls. Read his study here.

• James Capretta and Thomas P. Miller will examine rapidly rising health care costs and soaring budget deficits-in particular, the failure of the new legislation to break with the longstanding policy problems caused by open-ended taxpayer subsidies for the defined benefits promises embedded in Medicare, Medicaid, and employer plans, and the law's extension of similar promises to the uninsured. Read their study here.

• Stephen Parente will challenge the administration and Congress's health policy strategy to achieve broader adoption of interoperable health information technology (HIT) systems by relying heavily on unprecedented amounts of funding, yet with still-inadequate financial incentives and disincentives to health care practitioners. Read his study here.

Their proposals to remedy old problems and undo newer ones--through informed competition, defined contribution financing, and a medical banking model for HIT, respectively--will be discussed in detail at this event.
