NALEO Legislative Summit on Health - NALEO Educational Fund

About


October 20-21, 2017 | Las Vegas, NV


Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the rate of Latinos without health coverage decreased from 39 percent in 2013 to 29 percent in 2016.  Large numbers of Latinos still live without coverage even though more than half qualify.  With looming changes to how Americans will be able to access healthcare, there is concern that gains may be reversed.  State legislators must now pivot and consider the ongoing and impending policy issues that will inform how they approach the access and delivery of quality and affordable healthcare for their constituents.

The NALEO Educational Fund’s Legislative Summit on Health will provide state legislators with an opportunity to enhance their understanding of the health policies and legislation that state legislatures will be tackling in future legislative sessions. This Summit will explore the role state legislators and other state and federal lawmakers play in the development and implementation of the various aspects of health care policy and will also examine its impact on state budgets and other policy areas.

The Summit’s program will cover:

  • State Health Policy Trends
  • Latino Health and Prevention Strategies
  • The Future of the Affordable Care Act
  • Challenges of the American Healthcare Delivery System:
  • • Hospitals/Community Health Centers
    • Insurance
    • Drug Pricing

  • The Impact of Federal Immigration Policy on Healthcare Delivery
The Summit will convene state legislators, national and state experts, advocates, and other relevant stakeholders. Participants will have an opportunity to discuss and develop strategic collaborations for addressing the challenges and opportunities around healthcare delivery. Policymakers will receive information on the latest research, studies and best practices; exchange legislative policies and ideas; strengthen governance skills that support effective leadership in committee roles; and have the opportunity to network with colleagues and experts from throughout the country.
