MMCC Session Spotlight: Medicaid and Health Insurance Exchange Integration

Questions still abound around Health Insurance Exchanges with some states moving forward with implementation while others waiting on a federal mandate. At this year’s Medicaid Managed Care Congress, hear from our keynote panel of government officials as they discuss how Medicaid relates to Exchanges including different user profiles and health plans need to do now to prepare. The speakers represent states from different stages of Exchange planning and implementation, to provide a 360-degree view of what you should be considering now, regardless of how far along your state is in planning and implementation.  The event will take place April 30-May 2, 2012, in Baltimore, MD.  For more information on the event, download the brochure.  As a reader of this blog, when you register to join us and mention code XP1726BLOG, you'll receive 25% off the standard rate.
