While the Affordable Care Act has done much to reform our health care system, we still have millions of uninsured Americans. And even with insurance, deductibles and co-payments can overwhelm the budget of millions more Americans. On March 12, 2020, former U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Michael Leavitt and other leading experts will provide a non-partisan analysis of the leading proposals for reform to help us understand how well the proposals measure up in terms of fixing the problems with our health care system
