How will the new health care law affect those who must pay for it? This event held an in-depth discussion of the costs and consequences of the health reform bill and its impact on U.S. economic growth, federal and state government budgets, labor-market decisions, and private health insurance coverage. Panelists also focused on the various implementation challenges and burdens faced by employers who account for the overwhelming share of private health coverage.

Over lunch, Indiana governor Mitchell E. Daniels Jr. discussed the impact of the new federal law on health care market reforms at the state level--where officials face severe fiscal pressures--including the management of the state's Medicaid program.
