California Association of Health Plans Annual Conference
October 20-22, 2014
Huntington Beach, CA
Site: Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort & Spa
Address: 21500 Pacific Coast Highway, Huntington Beach, CA
Last year’s CAHP Conference was titled “Opening the Doors” as California prepared to fully embrace the Affordable Care Act’s major provisions—including new underwriting rules, the creation of a state-run health insurance exchange, and the Medicaid optional expansion.
The 2014 CAHP Conference title extends the metaphor of passing from a familiar environment to a new landscape of coverage and challenges. Millions of Californians for the first time have insurance cards that assure them good medical care. But containing health care costs is far more difficult that providing coverage. State regulations, legislative mandates, federal guidance zig-zags, lawsuits, initiatives, and complex Medi-Cal rate setting all complicate the ability of health plans to efficiently deliver affordable, high quality care.
This year’s program provides a review of the watershed year of 2014 and a look ahead as California’s health care system continues to evolve.
Bill Helvestine is a speaker at this event. His topic is entitled "The Affordable Care Act and the Courts: What's Around the Corner?"
