The landmark Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) presents local governments with both challenges and opportunities. As the various provisions of the legislation go into effect, local government leaders are retooling their healthcare plans to improve health and reduce costs, while also playing an important role in the law's implementation at the local level.
A range of healthcare and local government experts, leaders, and practitioners will discuss lessons learned from implementing the ACA and how it has stimulated new healthcare strategies during a press call on Monday, October 8 at 1:00 PM Eastern/10:00 AM MST. Hosted by ICMA, the International City/County Management Association, the call will include national thought leaders from ICMA and the Center for State and Local Government Excellence; leaders at the helm of local governments in Asheville, NC and San Antonio, TX; and a leading expert from top global health service company Cigna.
