Major Stakeholders in Health Reform Debate Call for Improvements in Scoring of Congressional Health Care Proposals
Date:4/22/2009

sparent.
  • CBO scoring does not currently include analysis of the broader economic impact a policy change will have through changes in population health and productivity. Estimates of this societal cost impact would be of great value to legislators.

  • Such a holistic and comprehensive approach to reform is the only way that we will truly help improve Americans' health, spend our limited health resources more wisely, and boost our economy.

    Thank you, in advance, for your support.
