Hartford, Conn. (PRWEB) July 12, 2013

The Connecticut Health Council, an association of health sector leaders who work together to promote Connecticut as a national center of health excellence and to improve health care and wellness, will host ‘Creating an Affordable, Effective & Sustainable Health Care System’ with Karen Ignagni on Wednesday, July 17th from 7:30-9:30a.m. at The Bushnell in Hartford.

As President and Chief Executive Officer of America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP), Ms. Ignagni is the voice of health insurance plans, representing members that provide health care, long-term care, dental and disability benefits to more than 200 million Americans. Ms. Ignagni regularly testifies before Congress on key federal legislation. In recent years, she has appeared before Senate and House committees on matters ranging from health insurance plans’ role in homeland security to Medicare reform to patient protection issues and access to health care coverage.

"High-value, affordable health care for individuals and families requires a sustained commitment by all stakeholders to actively engage and address the key drivers of health care costs,” said Karen Ignagni, President and CEO of America’s Health Insurance Plans. "There is tremendous opportunity ahead to embrace bold, innovative reforms."

During ‘Creating an Affordable, Effective & Sustainable Health Care System’ Ms. Ignagni will discuss the various changes to the insurance marketplace as a result of the Affordable Care Act and the opportunities for addressing barriers to affordability in the health care system.

“Ms. Ignagni is a nationally respected healthcare leader,” said Oz Griebel, President and CEO of the MetroHartford Alliance which provides the operational support for the Council. “We are delighted to welcome one of our country’s true health care leaders to Connecticut and to hear her perspective on our rapidly evolving health care system.”

“It is a testament to our evolving and maturing Health Council that we can attract an individual of Karen Ignagni’s national stature to come here to speak to us about health care in America today” said Mickey Herbert, The Council’s interim Executive Director.

The Connecticut Health Council’s programming is designed to link the network of professionals across various components of the health sector, thereby increasing the number of people promoting the State’s significant inventory of health assets and resources.

‘Creating an Affordable, Effective & Sustainable Health Care System’ is sponsored by Harvard Pilgrim Health Care with CT1 Media as the Media Sponsor.
