Why Attend the World Congress on Medicare?

At the 10th Annual World Congress on Medicare hear from leaders around the country as they update you on Medicare including Medicare Advantage. Cost savings and improving quality are perhaps the most important issues in Medicare right now. Our 10th annual conference is tailored to help you learn about each of these areas. Our sessions feature only the most informed leaders from around the country. We have health plan, state and federal perspectives on duals, ACOs, the sustainable growth rate, congressional budgets, star ratings and much more. Our health plan speakers include the largest Medicare insurers in the country - Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna and United Healthcare, who will discuss Medicare Advantage and duals.

Our federal and state perspectives are just as important and equally as captivating. Our keynote, Congressman Henry Waxman, has fought for health reform for years and was one of the writers of the Affordable Care Act. He will discuss regulations, budget cuts, and other areas in healthcare that will affect Medicare. Our state Medicaid Directors will discuss their states approach toward duals. Whether or not you come from a represented state, their insights will help guide you in your approach and understanding of all Medicare/Medicaid coordination efforts. Each and every one of our speakers has spent several years working on Medicare and has agreed to speak at our event because they want to help organizations understand and navigate the changes and challenges of Medicare.

All of our discussions are interactive. Our speakers encourage questions from the audience. Whether you are new to Medicare or a veteran of the business; this conference has something for you. Check out our agenda here.
