Programming Note: Families USA Health Action 2020 Conference

Head's up, readers...next week, for the third year in a row I'll be attending the Families USA Health Action conference in Washington, D.C...and for the first time, I'll actually be on one of the panels:

Friday, January 24th, 2:00pm-3:15pm • Workshops / Session 4

WHAT'S NEXT? COVERAGE AND AFFORDABILITY OPPORTUNITIES IN RED, BLUE, AND PURPLE STATES

Description: A surprisingly broad range of resources and options are available to streamline enrollment and to lower consumers’ health care and coverage costs in the individual market. Learn about promising, innovative strategies tailored to fit very different political conditions.

Speakers:

  • John-Pierre Cardenas, MSPH, Independent Health Policy Adviser, formerly Maryland Health Benefits Exchange
  • Charles Gaba, ACASignups.net
  • Heather Howard, J.D., Center for Health & Wellbeing, Woodrow School of Public and International Affairs, Princeton University
  • Holly Hernandez, Harris Health

Moderator: Stan Dorn, J.D., Families USA

To this day I have yet to come up with a good, official title for what I actually do...

I'll also be meeting with staffers of nearly a dozen different House members prior to the conference to discuss the House ACA 2.0 bills (#HR1868 & #HR1884) as well as any other healthcare policy stuff which happens to come up.

The timing is either fortuitous or unfortunate, because I'm gonna be flying into D.C. right in the middle of the actual U.S. Senate Impeachment Trial of President Donald J. Trump.

So, you know, I'm sure tensions won't be high and there won't be anything resembling a media circus or anything...
