President Obama has released a legislative proposal for discussion at a bipartisan summit on health care scheduled for Thursday, February 25. You can view the White House plan here. The proposal is absent a public health insurance option, delays taxes on high cost insurance plans until 2018, and includes reforms to reduce waste, fraud and abuse in Medicare. The NCMS is reviewing the plan and will continue to provide updates on this proposal and other national health system reform developments as available on the NCMS Health Reform page.
