ABSTRACT

COVID-19 and the Fiscal Sustainability of Federal Health Care Programs   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "Over the course of the last month, Congress has enacted roughly $4 trillion in spending measures related to the public health and economic fallout of the coronavirus pandemic. And that's only the start: Politicians are already positioning themselves for a likely fourth phase of emergency spending. Much of this money has been devoted to the health care response, and health care will remain a priority for future spending, particularly the costs for the uninsured and newly uninsured. But all of this new spending is deficit spending, which points to the underlying question facing all of the United States' health care programs: How are we going to pay for them?"
