Government health programs in the Biden administration: What to expect
Tuesday, January 26th, 2021 | 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM CT
With a new administration and changing leadership at HHS and CMS, we can expect government health programs to evolve. Federal and state revenue shortfalls will be taken into account as new leadership considers expansion of these programs. Join us for an examination of some potential policy scenarios and a discussion of how private sector health care stakeholders may be impacted.
With plans to build on the Affordable Care Act, states have new tools to expand coverage. We’ll talk about the potential impact of:
- More outreach and limiting what people must spend
- State-run health care plans
- Expanding Medicaid
