New York, NY (PRWEB) December 01, 2011
With health care among the leading debate topics in the 2012 U.S. presidential election, the future of Medicaid policy hangs in the balance. To address the impact of impending policies, state Medicaid directors, industry leaders and health plan coordinators will convene for the World Congress 5th Annual Leadership Summit on Medicaid Managed Care Feb. 28 – March 1, 2012 in Reston, Va.
In a special address, “Health Care Reform: One Year On,” U.S. Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.) will discuss structural shifts of the Medicaid system that have occurred since the recent federal health care reform law took effect and forecast how campaign politics and the upcoming 2014 Medicaid expansion will further impact Medicaid managed care. State Medicaid directors from across the country, including Massachusetts, New Jersey, Texas and Virginia, will also speak about key Medicaid managed care topics.
The summit, produced by global health care conference leader World Congress, will host a wide array of workshops, panels and discussions on all aspects of the Medicaid overhaul, such as health insurance exchanges, new models of care delivery, Medicaid/Medical integration and state-specific strategies for confronting Medicaid fiscal challenges. In addition to state Medicaid directors, the summit will convene numerous leading health insurers and healthcare industry experts, including WellPoint and Milliman.
