Health care is big businessaccounting for nearly one-fifth of the overall U.S. economy. And federal health policies often impact health care companies and their strategies. Understanding market trends and their implications can provide important context for policymakers.

At the 23rd annual Wall Street Comes to Washington Roundtable, Wall Street analysts—guided by health policy expert and economist Paul Ginsburg, Ph.D., director of the University of Southern California-Brookings Schaeffer Initiative for Health Policy—will discuss what the latest market developments mean for national health policy and how federal policies may affect the outlook for health care companies, including health plans, hospitals and physician organizations.


Panelists will discuss broad trends shaping the health care system, including the impact of federal policies on health care markets; regulation of insurance markets; ongoing merger and acquisition trends, especially the push for vertical integration among insurers, pharmacy benefit managers, retail pharmacies and physician practices; retail provider payment reform and the growing push for risk-based payment; underlying health care spending and insurance premium trends; hospital consolidation and pricing; hospital-physician relations; the outlook for Medicare and Medicaid managed care; and other issues.
