"Care for the Uninsured and Underinsured"

Description:

Over 46 million Americans are without health insurance and many more are underinsured. This has a direct impact on healthcare executives in terms of cost and reimbursement, provision of charity care, state law and community collaboration and benefit.  By hearing from hospital executives that have successfully implemented programs to care for the un/underinsured, in addition to local lawmakers that can speak to specific local regulations and policies, participants will get a better understanding of their obligations and opportunities in this important area. 

ACHE Category I Credit (pending).

Where: Hilton Garden Inn by SeaWorld

Panel Participants:

  • Becky Cherney - President/CEO of the Florida Health Care Coalition
  • Wes Fischer - President of The Health Insurance Store
  • Lisa Duri - Director of Brevard Health Alliance

Stay tuned for registration details.
