I was pleased to have the opportunity last week to speak with the Healthcare Leadership Council, a group of leaders from hospitals, health plans, pharmaceutical companies, academic health centers, biotech firms, and other parts of the health care system. In my remarks, I summarized our approach to policy analysis, our projections of federal spending for health care, and key types of federal health care policies that we are studying. For analysis of the budgetary effects—and advantages and disadvantages—of a large collection of possible policies, see CBO's November report on Health-Related Options for Reducing the Deficit: 2014 to 2023.
