OVERVIEW

The Eighth National Medicaid Congress is all about execution and implementation. Unlike 2012, when the fate of the program -- and the entire Accountable Care Act -- hung in the balance awaiting the Supreme Court's decision, 2013 is the year to figure out how to make sweeping changes work in 2014. These include the great expansion in coverage in States fully committed to such, with major outreach campaigns and major upgrades to enrollment systems, and State, Federal, or joint operation of health insurance exchanges everywhere. Waivers abound, and managed care is the watchword, even for dual eligibles, creating both opportunities and challenges for managed care plans and often concern from Medicaid advocates. There is also innovation and opportunity at State and local levels in new models of coordinated care for safety net populations -- medical homes, health homes, and a growing number of Medicaid ACOs.

The Eighth National Medicaid Congress brings together the best and the brightest from Federal and State government, academia, health plans, advocacy groups, and providers to explore the key policy and operational issues that face us. From its opening preconference on managing "super utilizers" to the closing plenary on the road ahead, the Congress offers practical reports from the field, including half-day tracks on dual eligibles and innovative delivery models, and keynote addresses from the leading Medicaid thought leaders. For those with limited travel budgets, the Congress will again be streamed live over the Internet, and tuition scholarships are available for students and safety net organizations. With 2014 just around the corner, the 2103 Medicaid Congress is a "must attend" event.
