Austin, TX *Participation in this program is strictly limited to a select group of health care industry leaders

Making health care better, more affordable, and more sustainable begins at the top. Engage with peers at the 2017 CEO Forum and:

  • Gain insights into where we are in regards to “reforming Reform” with Avik Roy, President, Foundation for Research on Equal Opportunity (FREOPP)
  • Share innovations and successes in delivery system reform with
    Farzad Mostashari, MD, ScM, CEO, Aledade, Inc.
  • Discuss big-picture thinking and state-level trends in Medicaid with Patricia Boozang, Senior Managing Director, Manatt Health; Gary Jessee, Deputy Executive Commissioner for Medical and Social Services, Texas Health and Human Services Commission; Esteban López, MD, MBA, Chief Medical Officer, Market President, Southwest, Texas, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas; and Pamela Morris, President & CEO, CareSource

Start your Institute & Expo experience by participating in the CEO Forum.* This half-day forum, geared for health care CEOs and their senior leadership teams, is more than a “sit-and-listen” meeting. You’ll engage in intense, roundtable-style conversations about the future of health care. You’ll network with peers from across the nation. You’ll address common challenges and discuss the realm of the possible.

Be prepared to roll up your sleeves and …

  • Converse with big-picture visionaries and community-focused stakeholders whose work resonates at all levels.
  • Engage in deep discussions with those who champion change.
  • Meet fearless innovators and time-tested gurus. Hear them out … then pick their brains!
  • Discover what works — and what doesn’t — in a non-competitive environment.
  • Take home actionable ideas (as well as a few cautionary tales).

Be sure to add this intensive event to your Institute & Expo 2017 conference registration. Register for the CEO Forum today.*

AHIP’s CEO Forum is sponsored by FirstCare Health Plans and held in partnership with the Texas Association of Health Plans and the Texas Association of Life & Health Insurers.

*Participation in this program is strictly limited to a select group of health care industry leaders, including AHIP member health plan CEOs and their senior leadership teams, Texas Association of Health Plans member organization CEOs and their senior leadership teams, and Texas Association of Life & Health Insurers member organization CEOs and their senior leadership teams.
