Viewpoint Luncheon: ACA and Medicaid Reform - Implications for Patients, Providers, and Payers in Metro Milwaukee
While the precise fate of the Affordable Care Act and efforts to "repeal and replace it" remain uncertain, what is certain is that major health insurance and Medicaid changes will continue to be debated in Washington and that such changes could have enormous policy and fiscal implications for Metro Milwaukee residents and governments. For example, would "block granting" federal Medicaid dollars to states help or harm Wisconsin's Medicaid program and budget? Will low-income citizens in our region have an easier or more difficult time accessing coverage and care under various reform proposals, and what are the stakes for local providers and insurers?
Join the Public Policy Forum at a Viewpoint Luncheon that will explore the potential implications of national health care reform on local citizens and stakeholders.
We'll begin with remarks from Linda Seemeyer, Secretary of the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.
Then, we'll hear from a panel of local health care leaders:
Bevan Baker, Commissioner, City of Milwaukee Health Department
Catherine Jacobson, CEO, Froedtert Health & Chair, Wisconsin Hospital Association Board
Mark Rakowski, Vice President, Children's Community Health Plan
Dr. Julie Schuller, President and CEO, Sixteenth Street Community Health Centers
Moderated by Forum President Rob Henken
