Achieving Affordability and Increased Access in Our Health Care System
Friday, June 1

L.A. Area Chamber
350 S. Bixel St.
Los Angeles, CA 90017
As California continues to strive toward increasing access and improving affordability of health care for all, one of the biggest debates centers on proposals to overhaul the system entirely. Join our June Health Care Council meeting for a discussion with John Baackes, CEO of L.A. Care Health Plan, the largest publicly operated health plan in the country, to learn about a public option and how it differs from single-payer and universal health care.
Additionally, we'll be joined by representatives from Uber Health, who will present their innovative new program that is helping patients get to and from their appointments with health care providers.
The Council will also review a potential November ballot measure on a bond for children's hospitals.
The Health Care Council advocates for policies that ensure responsible health care reform implementation, strengthen our County's health care safety net and promote healthier lifestyles.
All Council meetings are open to Chamber members only. Media and guests are only allowed with prior approval.
