The Council on Health Care Economics and Policy's signature event is the Princeton Conference, held annually in Princeton, N.J. These conferences have served as national platforms for health policy experts to present and debate key issues. These discussions have led to multiple publications over the past two decades that have helped shape health policy policies and regulation in the United States. 

The Princeton Conference appreciates the generous support of our sponsoring organizations.

Agendas, speaker presentations and publications from these conferences are available on this website.

The Council on Health Care Economics and Policy is an independent, nonpartisan deliberative body of recognized experts to identify critical issues generated by health system change, analyze the economic impact of such changes, and disseminate findings to national policy makers, health services researchers, industry leaders, and the general public.

The Council focuses on economic issues in the realm of health care policy. The Council will also consider the implications of system changes for access to health care services and for quality of care. The Council strives to generate new ideas for improving both the financing and delivery of health care services.
