WASHINGTON, D.C. -- On Tuesday, the morning after the GOP House membership issued its draft bill for the replacement of Obamacare, the University of Pennsylvania's Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics (Penn LDI) convened the "Health Reform and the Future of the Individual Insurance Market" forum in Washington, D.C. The event, co-sponsored by the Penn Wharton Public Policy Initiative, drew a crowd (above) of 200 health services researchers, Congressional staffers, consultants and professionals from across federal government health-related agencies.

The gathering was buzzed by the release of the controversial GOP health care plan and highly interested in discussing the specifics of how that proposed legislation would change health care as well as a better understanding of what was not known about the plan which has yet to be evaluated by the Congressional Budget Office.
