Health Reform Roundtables: Charting A Course Forward
Health Reform Roundtables: Charting A Course Forward is a series of discussions among federal officials, state officials and outside experts that provides an opportunity to share insights and explore key issues related to implementing a significant expansion of the Medicaid program as part of the new health reform law that will require most U.S. citizens and legal residents to obtain health coverage. States will be largely responsible for implementing the Medicaid expansion, which will provide coverage for lower income Americans through one of the largest enrollment efforts in the program’s history, and for establishing new health insurance Exchanges and coordinating Medicaid and Exchange coverage.
The roundtables are convened periodically by the Kaiser Family Foundation’s Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured at the Foundation’s Washington, D.C. offices. Briefs highlighting key issues raised in each discussion will be posted here as they become available.
