RAND Expert to Discuss the Future of the Affordable Care Act—Repeal, Replace, Repair or Improve?


Christine Eibner is a senior economist and associate director of the Health Services Delivery Systems program at the RAND Corporation. She is director of RAND COMPARE, a project that uses economic modeling to predict how individuals and employers will respond to major health care policy changes. Eibner co-authored “Evaluating the 'Keep Your Health Plan Fix': Implications for the Affordable Care Act Compared to Legislative Alternatives.”


Eibner will discuss:

  • How could proposed changes affect American consumers in terms of insurance coverage and costs?
  • What are the potential impacts of alternative policies for the federal budget?
  • What challenges do policymakers face in designing a health care system that provides access to affordable, high-quality health coverage?
  • Changes to the federal financing structure of Medicaid and options to replace the Cadillac tax.
