Overview

State Medicaid programs are undergoing fundamental transition. States are reshaping their Medicaid programs and their entire health systems by developing new models of providing benefits. The federal government continues to place Medicaid reform at the top of its agenda as it seeks broader cost savings. With the advent of the new Medicare prescription drug benefit, states must maneuver real-time challenges in managing their beneficiaries' health, while adjusting to the benefit's new financial requirements for states. These changes affect all health care stakeholders who must develop new policy and commercial strategies in response to the new evolution in Medicaid.

Join national thought leaders for the National Medicaid Congress, www.MedicaidCongress.com, June 4 - 6, 2006, in Washington, DC. This engaging three-day session will address critical questions about emerging Medicaid reform models, the expanded role of Medicaid managed care, new federal and state strategies to manage costs, the impact of the Medicare prescription drug benefit, and the future of Medicaid long-term care.
