Healthcare reform has become a key societal issue that has gotten a lot of attention since the passage of the Affordable Care Act in 2010. As politicians and policyholders attempt to address the challenges remaining in the US system, this Webinar will help you by explaining how we arrived at our current situation, so we have a better understanding about the problems that need to be solved.

Once we discuss how the U.S. healthcare system has evolved, we will look at a detailed comparative analysis of the wide range of international approaches to healthcare. This comparative analysis will allow attendees to assess what alternative approaches have – and have not worked – and will also focus on the positive and negative consequences associated with the trade-offs made to address some of the challenges faced by other countries.

The Webinar will wrap-up with a focus on what elements from international approaches could be used to improve the U.S. system.

Learning Objectives:
  • Comprehend the current U.S. health insurance market and how it evolved.
  • Identify the key forces that will help shape the U.S. market prospectively.
  • Better understand alternative healthcare system approaches utilized by other countries.
  • Compare healthcare quality and metrics across international approaches.
  • Identify elements of international approaches that could be integrated into the U.S. market.
Who Should Attend This Webinar?

Actuaries and insurance professionals interested in…
  • How the U.S. healthcare system developed
  • Healthcare approaches used by non-U.S. countries
  • Learning the pros and cons of non-U.S. healthcare systems
  • Learning about what elements of international healthcare systems could ultimately be integrated into the U.S. system
