On Thursday, June 25th HCFANY members from around the state gathered in Albany to learn from one another, share their experiences, and build momentum for upcoming efforts. With 78 attendees this was one of our biggest Spring Meetings yet. Thank you to everyone who joined us!
The agenda featured immigrant health coverage, the Basic Health Plan, payment and delivery system reform efforts, improving health plan network adequacy, and keeping insurance rates affordable.
We were joined by special guests David Jones, President and CEO of Community Service Society, and Jackie Cornell-Bechelli, Regional Director, Office of the Secretary, Region II, HHS.
The meeting closed with HCFANY Task Force meetings for the Racial and Ethnic Disparities Task Force and the Children, Youth and Families Task Force. We went home at the end of the day excited to take on these new and exciting health care policy challenges.
