Although the Affordable Health Care Act (Obamacare) has improved health care delivery, unfortunately many Californians still do not have accessible, equitable, affordable, or quality health coverage. The challenges to improving healthcare are significant, however, there are opportunities to improve the current system. To discuss some of the key issues and paths forward, the UC Berkeley Emeriti Academy has invited 3 speakers to share with us some of the most critical issues facing California Healthcare Policy.
(1) California Healthcare Today: How Healthy Are We?,
(2) Access, Affordability, and Equity: How recent changes in law are positioned to impact people with mental health and illness issues,
(3) How Much Does California Spend on Healthcare and What Can We Do About It?
Discussion among the panelists, and audience participation will follow each speaker.
