Cost-Sharing Roundtable—Introduction

Healthcare cost-sharing remains a significant barrier to healthcare access, especially among patients with chronic conditions or those with financial constraints, and could prevent patients from getting much-needed health services, use of diagnostic tests, or result in adherence issues due to patients skipping doses or not filling their prescription medications.

At the Cost-Sharing Roundtable on February 23, 2018, presenters and panelists—from academic institutions, health policy organizations, and charitable foundations—shared their findings and experiences with financial hardships faced by patients, and brain stormed ideas on how best to address the situation via practical advice and policy changes.
