ERC members attend CSG forum in DC on the future of Medicaid

A few weeks ago, seven legislative and staff members from the CSG-ERC region were in Washington DC attending a three-day CSG Medicaid 101 Policy Academy. ERC attendees represented Connecticut, Maryland, Puerto Rico and Vermont. Medicaid covers one in five residents of the ERC region and funds $140 billion in health care services. The forum included twelve expert speakers on topics from the basics of the Medicaid program to the latest news on the impact of efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. The forum ended with updates from participants about Medicaid in their states. Slides from presenters are online.
