HMA Announces Cancellation of 2020 Annual Conference

Health Management Associates has made the decision to cancel its October 2020 conference on Trends in Publicly Sponsored Healthcare, given continuing developments concerning COVID-19 and out of an abundance of caution for the safety of attendees, speakers, and staff. Full refunds will be made to registered attendees and sponsors.

“Cancelling this year’s conference was a difficult decision, but we believe it’s the correct one given the circumstances,” said Carl Mercurio, principal and publisher of HMA Information Services.

Next year’s conference is scheduled for October 10-12 at the Fairmont Chicago Millennium Park.

“We hope you will consider joining us at the 2021 event,” Mercurio said. “Meanwhile, stay safe, and we hope to see you soon.”

The annual HMA conference has emerged as the go-to event for information, insights, and networking, attracting 500 executives from health plans, providers, state and federal government, community-based organizations, and others serving Medicaid and other vulnerable populations. It is a collaborative, high-level event featuring more than 40 speakers and representing the interests of a broad-based constituency of healthcare leaders.
