Putting the Nation's Policy Agenda into Perspective for States

Regardless of the outcome of next week’s election, 2013 will be a critical year for health policy. This is particularly true at the state level, where officials continue to adapt to states’ changing roles as health care providers, purchasers, and market regulators.
Attend AcademyHealth's National Health Policy Conference (NHPC) to hear first-hand from experts who can illustrate what policies and priorities mean for states. The NHPC is your first post-inaugural opportunity to hear directly from administration officials, congressional leaders, and state officials about the 2013 policy agenda, and from clinicians, industry executives, patients, and researchers about how it translates to care. State-related sessions include:
State Issues – Opportunities & Challenges for State Officials
Moderator: Alan Weil, National Academy for State Health Policy
Patty Fontneau, Executive Director, Colorado Health Benefit Exchange
Christopher Koller, Rhode Island Health Insurance Commissioner
Julie Weinberg, Division Director, Medicaid, New Mexico Human Services Department
