President Barack Obama is inviting 21 high-ranking lawmakers of both parties to a televised summit on healthcare Feb. 25. The White House also is asking the top four congressional leaders to designate four more lawmakers each to attend.

The White House also detailed the format of the event in a letter Friday to congressional leaders. President Barack Obama will offer opening remarks, followed by comments from a Republican leader and a Democratic leader.

Obama will then moderate a discussion on four topics: insurance reforms, cost containment, expanding coverage and the impact of health legislation on the deficit.

The White House says a healthcare plan will be posted online in advance of the event and is asking Republicans to do the same.
