The participation of private managed care plans in the U.S. Medicare programme (which provides health insurance coverage for elderly and permanently disabled Americans) has long been controversial. In her talk, Emily will share her insights from examining models of private plan participation in the Medicare programme in the United States, with the goal of better understanding the influence of recent payment and regulatory policy changes on plan participation in the Medicare market. 

This event will take place on Thursday May 18 from 1pm-2.15pm in the staff room on the 6th floor of the Chrystal Macmillan Building.
