  • 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.
