C-suite executives from AmeriHealth Caritas, Centene, Community Health Choice of California, Health Care Service Corp., Humana, UnitedHealthcare, and UMPC Health Plan are scheduled to speak on trends in publicly sponsored healthcare at HMA’s Sixth Annual Conference, October 30-31 in Chicago.

They join keynote speaker Alan Weil, editor-in-chief of Health Affairs, and other experts in addressing innovation, value, equity, and growth opportunities and challenges facing Medicaid, Medicare, and Marketplaces across multiple and varied plenary, breakout, and panel sessions. See below for a list of confirmed speakers to date.

The conference also will feature a preconference workshop on October 29, during which HMA behavioral health leaders will address national trends and challenges for system redesign and serving complex populations. Participants will work on solving provider and population challenges during group activities.

We’re excited to welcome hundreds of attendees from health plans, providers, state and federal government, investment firms, and community-based organizations to enjoy top-notch content, interface with leading experts, make new connections, and garner fresh ideas and best practices.
