NOSORH’s Policy and Program Monitoring Team (PPMT) is excited to announce an upcoming virtual conference titled State Coverage Initiatives Affecting Rural Communities. This four-part series will examine current and proposed state initiatives affecting Medicaid coverage, with a focus on the impact to rural communities. The four-day series will take place May 14-17, 2018 at 3:00 pm ET daily. SORH and their partners are encouraged to attend, as well as inviting anyone who has an interest in rural health policy.
The first two sessions will feature Harvey Licht of Varela Consulting discussing the landscape of state initiatives, including ACA marketplaces and Medicaid waivers. Session three will focus on ACA Marketplaces at the state level with presentations from leadership in both Alaska and New Mexico’s departments of insurance. Session four will focus on Medicaid waivers, highlighted by policy experts from Indiana and Kentucky. Sessions three and four will focus on state-specific examples of these initiatives in a listening session format, allowing attendees to ask questions during the webinar.
