2013 National Policy Forum

 Stay Ahead of the Curve  

If there is one health care lesson of the past few years, it is that health policy matters. The decisions made in Washington and every state capital have far-reaching consequences for everyone, including consumers, clinicians, Fortune 500 employers, small businesses, health plans, and so many others. Health policy is complex and it is all encompassing.

In this rapidly changing environment, it is critical for health plans to stay ahead of the curve.  AHIP’s 2013 National Policy Forum is one-stop shopping for those seeking insights on the latest policy developments and trends shaping health care. Held March 13-14, 2013 in Washington, the National Policy Forum is a two-day intensive program designed to help health plans prepare to meet the challenges and opportunities of 2013 and beyond.

Every year, AHIP’s National Policy Forum features senior Administration officials, Governors, key Members of Congress and their staff, along with recognized experts from across the spectrum. The 2013 National Policy Forum promises to be no exception and will focus on key issues of importance to health plans, including: 

  • ACA implementation
  • Affordability
  • Benefit design
  • Delivery system reforms
  • Entitlement  reform
  • Health exchanges
  • Hospital consolidation
  • Medical loss ratio
  • Medicaid expansion
  • Quality & value-based purchasing 

With the pace of change only accelerating, AHIP is your go-to resource for specialized programs that address the key questions you need answered about health insurance, public programs, and employer-sponsored coverage. Enrollment space is limited. Don’t delay in registering!

Attend multiple conferences with one trip.

In addition to the National Policy Forum, consider adding the following to your week.

Dual Eligibles Summit (March 12)
AHIP’s Dual Eligibles Summit: Improving Care, Coverage, and Cost, will convene experts from the across the spectrum on March 12, 2013 in Washington, D.C. to examine the latest federal and state developments and discuss issues related to access, care integration, and quality measurement for dual eligibles. This event will also showcase innovative stakeholder initiatives and partnerships that are demonstrating success in achieving better care integration for dual eligible populations.
