You won't want to miss this opportunity to hear the latest updates about Maryland's multiple healthcare reform initiatives from the leaders at the forefront of healthcare reform in Maryland.
Consumer Health First's third annual Get Engaged Symposium will convene on September 16 at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Annapolis. Our theme is Transformation: Getting it Right. Some of the questions we will ask are:
- As we enter our 4th Open Enrollment period - just how transformative has the ACA been and what more must we do?
- Is Maryland's All-Payer Model as transformative as leaders say? If so, why? And, what issues do we need to watch for?
- Are Maryland's transformation initiatives having an impact on our mission of health equity? If not, what more can we do?
- How can we continue to engage, as individuals and collectively, in the transformation of our health care system?
Helping us answer these questions and more are a talented array of healthcare policy professionals and providers. Confirmed speakers include:
- Keynote Speaker: Dr. Cara James, Director of the Office of Minority Health at the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
- Willem Daniel - Social Science Analyst, Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation, CMS
