July 27 Virtual Event: “What the public health emergency unwinding means for people enrolled in Medicaid”
On Wednesday, July 27, USofCare and Softheon presented “What the public health emergency (PHE) unwinding means for people enrolled in Medicaid” with expert hosts and panelists:
Liz Hagan, Director of Policy Solutions at USofCare
Rob Miller, General Manager and Senior Vice President, Government Solutions at Softheon
Chiqui Flowers, Administrator at Oregon Health Authority
Marissa Woltmann, Senior Director of Policy and Applied Research at Massachusetts Health Connector
Lindsay Lang, Director at HealthSource RI
Josh Schultz, Senior Policy Analyst at Softheon
The group provided their insights and a deep dive into how they’re approaching the PHE unwinding and what the implications of this will be on real people and real communities. The group also discussed lessons learned during the PHE and its effects on the number of people enrolled in coverage in their respective states, as well as how they are thinking about future coverage expansions following the end of the PHE.
A major part of USofCare’s work is to bring together diverse groups from across the health care space in our mission to build a better and more equitable system in the wake of the pandemic. These connections help us keep striving for a system where people’s coverage is dependable and understandable, their care is personalized, and where we can all have certainty that our care will be affordable.
Thanks to Softheon and our panelists for joining us!
