Cover Oregon, Medicaid expansion, access to healthcare, and the Affordable Care Act have dominated headlines for the past year. Infinity Rehab aims to make sense of these issues by hosting a panel of healthcare experts at its 2014 Continuing Education Symposium. The three member panel will discuss the future of post-acute care, the impact legislative changes hold for therapists and consumers, and a bevy of other topics.
