Sixth Annual Symposium on Access to Health Care: Comparative Universal Coverage Efforts & Expanding Access to Health Care
This event was presented by the Beazley Institute for Health Law and Policy and Annals of Health Law on November 9, 2012.
While the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Affordable Care Act, the United States has a long road to achieving universal coverage. Countries around the world, including China, Mexico, and the Netherlands, have already established a human right to affordable health care and have even passed legislation intended to provide access to their respective populations. Domestically, some states have made use of Medicaid waivers and other innovative techniques aimed at covering as many people as possible within limited budgets and amidst a global recession. The goal of the Sixth Annual Symposium on Access to Health Care is to examine existing universal health care systems and ongoing efforts to expand efforts and to extract valuable lessons from both international and domestic models as we continue the process of reforming health care in the United States.
