Florida Medicaid Comprehensive Agreement Discussion
As many of you are aware, this weekend comes on the heels of a milestone announcement for our organization and the children of the state of Florida. This week, we announced that we have reached a comprehensive agreement with the Agency for Healthcare Administration (AHCA), the Department of Health (DOH), and the Department of Children & Families (DCF). This weekend, Dr. Tommy Schechtman, FCAAP President, will be leading a brief discussion to share additional details surrounding this significant step in the right direction toward achieving our goal of improving access to medical care for all children in the state of Florida. Join us to hear: What the key aspects of this settlement are; How we will be working with ACHA and other state agencies to implement the agreement; and How you can help participate and take advantage of these options.
The program also includes a presentation on how you, as a pediatric practitioner, can make a difference in the practice of pediatrics and the healthcare of children through the legislative process. Florida lobbyist Marnie George will provide an update on the result of the 2016 legislative session and practical tips that you can use to make a difference for pediatricians and children!
