Gov.'s Advisory Committee to Establish Work Groups

Posted October, 28 2010 by arianne

The second meeting of the Governor’s Health Care Reform Advisory Committee was held last Monday, October 25th, in Albany.  Several representatives from HCFANY and our member organizations were in attendance.

 Along with updates on the NY Bridge Plan, NYSHIP, and incoming federal grants, the bulk of the conversation centered around the establishment of seven “work groups.”

These work groups will be tasked with working on several specific issues related to health care reform implementation.  The following is a list of preliminary topics:

  • Health Insurance Exchange
  • Commercial Market Reforms
  • Public Health Insurance Programs
  • Outreach and Enrollment
  • Cost-containment/Delivery System Reforms
  • Public Health
  • Long-term Care

Officials from the State Department of Health stated that they would be posting information, meeting times, and an RSVP link on the state’s implementation website for any groups interested in attending.
