Washington, D.C.

Attendance is limited to AHIP health insurance provider members, AHIP Retained Counsel, and state trade association executives.

Focused discussions | Big picture thinking | Ideas that hit home

Take a few days out of the office to focus on state-level strategic planning. At AHIP’s Annual State Issues Retreat, you’ll get expert guidance on the latest regulatory and legislative issues. You’ll brainstorm with those who face similar challenges, then take home state-specific solutions that can make an impact within the communities you serve.

In a collaborative, retreat style setting that fosters meaningful networking and idea-sharing, we’ll take on the issues that matter most, including:

  • High-cost Drugs
  • Surprise Billing
  • Alternative & Universal Health Care
  • Medical Management
  • Reinsurance and 1332 Waivers
  • Privacy (Cybersecurity and Personal Data)
  • MACRA
  • Supplemental Assessments
