Save the Date for HMA’s 2017 Conference on Trends in Publicly Sponsored Healthcare

The Future of Medicaid is Here: Implications for Payers, Providers and States

Sept. 11-12, 2017
Chicago, IL

Health Management Associates (HMA) is proud to announce its 2nd conference on Trends in Publicly Sponsored Healthcare, Sept. 11-12, 2017, in Chicago. The theme of this year’s event is The Future of Medicaid is Here: Implications for Payers, Providers and States and features as keynote speakers some of the nation’s most innovative healthcare leaders.

This is the second conference HMA has presented on trends in publicly sponsored healthcare. Our inaugural event last year in Chicago brought together 250 executives from health plans, providers, state and federal government, community-based organizations and others serving Medicaid and other vulnerable populations. It was a collaborative, high-level event featuring more than 30 speakers and representing the interests of a broad-based constituency of healthcare leaders.

This year’s meeting promises to be even better, with a sharp focus on the challenges and opportunities for organizations serving Medicaid and other vulnerable populations given the priorities of the incoming Trump Administration.
