2017 Policy & Issues Forum


Visit HITEQ at booth #403 in Exhibit Hall C on Friday, March 31st.

On March 29, 2017 health cen­ter lead­ers will join deci­sion-mak­ers and pub­lic health lead­ers in the heart of Wash­ing­ton, D.C. to focus on the future. Your attendance at this national gathering is more critical than ever.  Health care issues will be front and center as the new Administration and lawmakers on Capitol Hill assess health policies and consider proposals to restructure key federal programs, such as the Affordable Care Act, Medicaid, and Medicare.  While many questions remain about the legislative plans taking shape, one thing is certain: your voice and participation is needed. Every one of us must take an active role to advocate for our future and demonstrate our value to the nation’s health care system.

Our objectives remain the same: preserve Medicaid and our unique role within it, maintain current services by fixing the funding cliff well before the September 2017 deadline, and ensure strong funding to enhance health center capacity, including investment in workforce.

The P & I Forum is an oppor­tu­nity for clinicians, board members, consumers, executives and many other community health leaders to bring per­spec­tives to Mem­bers of Con­gress and offer con­struc­tive solu­tions to the issues at hand. Par­tic­i­pants will also have the oppor­tu­nity to hear from gov­ern­ment offi­cials, some of the nation’s lead­ing health­ care experts, and their peers.

Do not miss this oppor­tu­nity to get the most up-to-date infor­ma­tion and tools to help your health cen­ter orga­ni­za­tion stay ahead of the game.  Stay tuned to this page for updates on key sessions and speakers at the NACHC 2017 Policy and Issues Forum.
