White House Maps Out Agenda for Health Care Summit

The White House is sketching out its agenda for Thursday’s bipartisan health care summit, which will run for six hours and feature top administration officials at the top of each series of discussions.

President Barack Obama will attend the entire meeting, which will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Obama will kick off the event with opening remarks, followed by comments from Republican and Democratic Members chosen by party leaders to attend the event.

From there, talks will center on four themes: controlling costs, insurance reforms, reducing the deficit and expanding coverage. Obama, Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius and Vice President Joseph Biden will rotate in between the discussions introducing different topics.

Attendees will be seated at tables in a hollow square setup facing each other.
