In this AEI Events Podcast, AEI’s Thomas Miller hosts a group of experts gather to begin a series of conversations regarding emerging topics in health policy research, particularly the role of health savings accounts (HSAs) to reduce costs and improve outcomes.

Mr. Miller begins the event by discussion how HSAs fit within the contemporary health policy debate. In the following panel discussion, topics include how HSAs work in practice, how certain policy measures could aid in leveraging these accounts, how HSAs boost enrollment in small group health plans, and how they may capture the benefit conferred by the federal tax treatment of health insurance. Panelists include Jinqi Ye (Huazhong University of Science and Technology), Roy Ramthun (HSA Consulting Services), and Lauren Roth (St. John’s University School of Law). The discussion is moderated by Thomas P. Miller (AEI).

This event took place on July 6, 2017.
