States are reshaping their Medicaid programs and their entire health systems, developing new models for delivering benefits and expanding coverage for the uninsured. Federal and state policy makers, from both political parties, are increasingly focused on improving state-based health programs, and Congress will soon consider reauthorization of and possible expansions to the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP). Long-term care reform is also a top priority to policy makers, as they grapple with increased demands on long-term care systems.

Join national thought leaders for the National Medicaid Congress, www.MedicaidCongress.com, June 13 - 15, 2007, in Washington, DC. This engaging three-day session will address critical questions about state uninsured initiatives, long-term care transformations and Medicaid state benefit, delivery, and quality innovations.
