Washington, D.C.

From payment rates and value-based payment models to expansion and major new regulations — stay on top of the latest trends and operational need-to-knows at AHIP’s National Conferences on Medicare, Medicaid & Duals in Washington, D.C.

What’s on the horizon?

The Medicare and Medicaid programs now insure more than one-third of Americans and it’s more vital than ever before to focus on moving forward and adapting to meet new demands. Get in-depth perspectives and analysis from policymakers, health plan leaders, scholars, thought leaders, and industry stakeholders on:

  • The Agency’s view of both the Medicare and Medicaid programs for 2017 and beyond, and future priorities for MA and Part D.
  • What comes next for Medicare/Medicaid Dual-eligible integration.
  • Innovative program designs, value-based approaches, and effective collaborations for improving beneficiary health and well-being.
  • Ways that MA plans are effecting positive change in the Medicare program, and in turn, how Medicare is helping transform the health care system.
  • Harmonizing the new Medicaid Managed Care Rule standards with efficient business operations.
  • How Medicare Advantage (MA) plans are improving the lives of low-income beneficiaries in the inner city.
  • Tactical guidance on encounter data, provider directories, RADV audits, FDR oversight, and denials, appeals and grievances, and more.
  • Providing coordinated access to quality, person-centered care.
  • Preparing for possible implications of the 2016 election on public programs.
