America is facing a double whammy: a public health emergency and an economic depression that is eliminating health insurance for millions of unemployed. How can America preserve health insurance? Policy makers are weighing three options: preserve the current employer-based insurance, strengthen President Obama's program of offering subsidies to purchase private insurance, or creating a government-run health insurance system.

Joel Ario, former Obama health official and a consultant at the Manatt firm, assesses each of these options. He is joined by Minnesota Senate Deputy Majority Leader Michelle Benson (R). Scott Keefer, Vice President of Public Affairs at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota, provides the introduction. Professor Larry Jacobs moderates the conversation.

This event is part of a series of public forums sponsored by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota hat explore health care reform. By fostering discussions among local policy makers, stakeholders, and citizens, these forums examine the challenges and opportunities in health care reform and help ensure Minnesota’s legacy as a leader in individual and community health.
