Health Reform 2.0: Navigating A Path Forward

While there is considerable uncertainty about the next steps in the health reform
debates, this session will explore potential targeted health care legislative
changes, along with administrative and regulatory steps Congress and the
Administration might take to address challenges in the individual market and
throughout the broader health care system. The speaker will provide a
strategic assessment of the anticipated short-and long-term impact and what the
changes and timing might mean for 2017-2018 benefits strategy. Implications
for coverage, the insurance market, and the Medicaid program will also be
addressed.

Transitioning from Volume to Value: Making the Business Case for Physicians

Transitioning from volume-based to value-based payment and care delivery
models in health care has been one of the most important industry-wide efforts
over the past few years, but the pace of adoption has been slow. While there
has been focus on value in physician compensation, physicians are often
reluctant to bear full financial risk for care delivery. At the same time, however,
many physicians conceptually endorse some of the principles behind value-
based care, such as quality, resource utilization measurement, and greater
physician autonomy. Given the increasing efforts to transition to value-based
payment models, this session will explore how health care organizations can
stimulate wider adoption rates among physicians.

Medicaid and the New Administration: Implications for State Innovations and Medicaid Managed Care

This session will explore potential innovations in the Medicaid program that states and the new Administration may be considering, and the implications for Medicaid managed care.  Medicaid health plans and state Medicaid leaders will highlight the potential implications of a variety of waiver design elements that states may submit and CMS may approve with expanded flexibility, along with potential changes in the federal regulatory landscape. They will also discuss lessons learned from recent efforts to improve community access to services, reduce unnecessary hospitalizations, improve the quality of members’ lives, and encourage more cost-effective care.
