AmeriHealth Caritas hosted a thought leadership forum at the Newseum in Washington, D.C., to commemorate 50 years of Medicaid and kick off a national dialogue on the best path forward to ensuring health care access for Americans who are most in need.
Throughout the day, more than 160 thought leaders from the health care industry, government, business and academia marked the achievements and challenges of the Medicaid program and discussed health care solutions for the future that are grounded in innovation, technology and policy.
Today, nearly 70 million people are enrolled in Medicaid. They are counting on us to work together to find new ways to remove barriers and improve access to quality health care and services, and ultimately, create healthier communities. We have tremendous opportunity before us, and we look forward to continuing the work we began in our nation's capital.
