Breakout Session I: Lowering Costs for Patients and Improving Quality

Friday, October 11th

About the Session

Research shows that, when it comes to serious illness care, out-of-pocket costs are a top concern for consumers. Cost on a national level is a frequent topic of conversation but we rarely discuss reducing cost for the patient without compromising the quality of care that they receive. This session will focus on interventions spanning a variety of fronts, from federal policy to patients and clinicians.
