Request for Report on Preventive Health Care

January 2019

SUMMARY: Preventive health care services can avert disease or lead to earlier treatment of diseases and other health problems, offering the potential to improve people's health and thus improve the quality and length of their lives. Chairman Yarmuth requested that CBO prepare a report that discusses how the agency analyzes both the short-term and long-term effects of legislative proposals that seek to improve peoples' health through policies that prevent illness and the progression of disease.
