Washington, D.C.

Americans are living longer, healthier lives.

Since their enactment more than 50 years ago, the Medicare and Medicaid programs have made great strides in delivering health care to our nation’s most vulnerable – the aging, the poor, the disabled. We can look to these programs’ innovations in payment reform, benefit design, and community-based care as models for reshaping the way we deliver quality health care.

During AHIP’s National Conferences on Medicare, Medicaid & Duals, you’ll uncover the myriad ways health plans are reducing barriers to care, delivering high-quality services, and lowering costs, including:

  • Developing partnerships and community-based collaborations,
  • Testing innovations at the state level,
  • Utilizing technology for more efficient care delivery,
  • Expanding value-based provider relationships,
  • Lowering costs through Alternative Payment Models (APMs),
  • Addressing the unique social factors impacting the health of vulnerable populations, and
  • Balancing affordability and innovation for prescription drugs.

From ensuring value and improving outcomes for beneficiaries to policy and regulatory changes, you’ll hear the latest updates for today, as well as priorities for the future. Register today!
