If you were to redesign Medicare without spending more money, what would you keep and what would you change? A new report on a Center for Healthcare Decisions program provides insight into the public’s willingness to restructure Medicare in the face of tightening budget constraints. Using an interactive, computer-based system, program participants faced the challenge of making Medicare more responsive to the needs of current and future beneficiaries. 
Were participants willing to accept limits on their choice of provider or reduced coverage of low-value medical care? Would they accept the need for greater personal responsibility in their use of health services? Would they agree that Medicare should adopt other policies to promote fiscal responsibility?

We welcome you to join us as a panel of distinguished experts explore the implications of the report and the consumer role in shaping the future of Medicare.
