Facing The Future: Will the Inflation Reduction Act Lower Federal Health Care Spending?

This week on Facing the Future, we closely examine the health care provisions contained in the recently passed “Inflation Reduction Act” with Josh Gordon, Director of Health Policy for the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget.

Gordon walks us through the provisions meant to cut prescription drug prices for Medicare recipients and evaluates if these measures and others will reduce overall federal spending on health care. Plus, he has a few reform ideas of his own.
