This report is based on a transcript of a Council of State Governments' Health Policy Forum that was held to analyze the impact of new medical technologies on individuals' longevity and quality of life, and to assess the short- and long-term benefits/costs of providing access to new technologies as America ages. This report was produced to expand the reach of information from the forum to hopefully add to the development of sound public policy.
