Event details

Now that we have a national health care reform bill, what does that mean for California? Join us for perspectives from a leading authority on health care in the state. We'll learn about resources for reporters and specifics about how the new reform bill will affect various sectors of health care in California in the months and years ahead.

Topics & speakers

  • Overview: Mark Smith, M.D., president/CEO, will tell us how CHCF can assist reporters on various aspects of health care research.
  • Health care reform in California: What's next now that the national bill has been passed? CHCF's Senior Project Manager Marian Mulkey will discuss reform implementation this year, especially around California state government finance, insurance company regulation, and consumer access to health services.

There will plenty of time for discussion, so please bring your ideas and questions.
