The Medicare Mysteries: Which plan is best for you and why do drugs cost so much?
In this talk, Drs. Romano and Hoch from the UC Davis Center for Healthcare Policy and Research will help shed light on some of the more common mysteries surrounding Medicare. Dr. Romano is a primary care physician who practices in a team approach with physicians-in-training. His research focuses on developing, testing, and validating health care quality measures, and using outcomes data to improve the quality and effectiveness of health care. He will talk about how to make sense of all the information reported on Medicare.gov, and how to use the available information to pick the best Medicare Advantage plan for your needs. Jeffrey Hoch has a PhD in health economics from the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health and has delivered over 200 invited presentations in 15 countries. He will talk about why the cost of drugs for seniors is so high, and how we could lower Medicare drug costs in the future.
