Medicaid: Current Funding and Policy Issues


AHLA's Conversations with Policymakers Series
Wednesday, July 20, 2005


Health Lawyers concluded its Spring/Summer 2005 Public Interest Teleconference series with " Medicaid: Current Funding and Policy Issues," on Wednesday, July 20, 2005. The speakers were:
  • Rodney Whitlock
    Health Policy Advisor to the Republican Majority on the Senate Finance Committee, Washington, DC
  • Bridgett Taylor
    Democratic professional staff member with the House Energy and Commerce Committee, Washington, DC
  • Matt Salo
    Director of the National Governors Association's Health and Human Services Committee, Washington, DC
  • Joel M. Hamme (Moderator)
    Partner, Powers Pyles Sutter & Verville PC, Washington, DC

Whitlock, Taylor, and Salo discussed proposals currently before Congress that would reduce Medicaid spending by $10 billion over four years and enact substantive changes in the state-administered program that now pays for medical services and long-term care for 53 million Americans. A series of Medicaid reform proposals developed by the National Governors Association provided a starting point for the panel's discussion. Time was provided for questions and discussion with callers.
