Health Care Policy in 2017: A Look Ahead at the State and Federal Landscape

Date: Tuesday, January 24, 2017
Time: 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM (EST)

Program Description:
The November elections will have a significant impact on health policy at both the state and federal levels. Congressional leaders have vowed to repeal the Affordable Care Act, landmark legislation that established a framework for coverage that has resulted in the lowest uninsured rate ever recorded, rights and protections for health care consumers, and provisions to advance health equity. State leaders have acknowledged that something must be done about Georgia's high number of uninsured, the state's struggling rural health care system, and the impending funding cuts to hospitals. This webinar will provide the most recent information about expected and proposed health policy changes at the federal level, and a preview of Georgia's 2017 state legislative session. Additionally, we will identify how you can get involved in issues that you care about through advocacy and public engagement. Join us for a look ahead at health care policy in 2017.

Learning Objectives:
Upon completion of the program, participants will be able to:

  • Outline one proposed change to federal health care policy
  • Identify one piece of health care legislation expected in the 2017 Georgia legislative session
