Next Steps in Health Reform
October 26-27, 2017
American University Washington College of Law

This meeting brings together health lawyers, policymakers, advocates, researchers, and students from across the country to discuss the dynamic health reform landscape.

Leading experts will discuss cutting edge issues facing federal and state lawmakers, officials, public interest groups, and the health care industry:

  • Health care delivery and payment reform, including value-based purchasing, transparency, and drug pricing;

  • Private insurance regulation, including coverage for individuals with pre-existing conditions, tax credits, and essential health benefits;

  • The future of Medicaid and CHIP, including financing and eligibility reform and the evolving federal-state relationship;

  • Responses by states and communities to the changing federal role in health care.

Contact with any questions.
