LIVE with Sherry Glied and Craig Garthwaite on National Health Care Spending in 2020 and the COVID-19 Pandemic

“Let us hope that this is a one in a hundred years pandemic. We don’t want to build our health care system to operate at all times as if tomorrow will be COVID.” – Sherry Glied

On December 15, Health Affairs published ahead-of-print, “National Health Care Spending In 2020: Growth Driven By Federal Spending In Response To The COVID-19 Pandemic,” the annual national health expenditures article prepared by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Office of the Actuary. Always one of Health Affairs’ most-read articles, this year’s provides the first official report on spending that reflects the effects of COVID-19. 

During a live Lunch and Learn event, a discussion was held on the findings with economists Sherry Glied from the Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service at New York University and Craig Garthwaite from Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management. 

The event was held on January 5, 2022.

Listen to Health Affairs Senior Editor Laura Tollen interview Sherry Glied and Craig Garthwaite about what’s behind the numbers regarding the latest national health care spending report, long COVID, health care spending reform, which hospitals gained the most during the pandemic, delayed care, and more. 

Lunch and Learn events hosts top researchers and analysts on timely topics and initiatives impacting health policy. Interested in attending future events? Sign up for Health Affairs Today or Health Affairs Sunday Update newsletters to be the first to hear about the upcoming events.
