The University of Iowa hosted a symposium to review and discuss how the recently enacted federal health reforms may affect health policy in Iowa, including the need to address immediate possible impacts in financing and infrastructure. The Health Reform Symposium considered key aspects of health reform, including:

  • (a) Medicaid Expansion/Iowa Care Provider Network Expansion
  • (b) Health Insurance Exchanges
  • (c) Care Coordination
  • (d) Health Information Technology

The conversation considered how the federal health care reform may intersect with state legislation, including the expansion of Iowa Care coverage in Senate File 2356, report of the Legislative Health Care Commission established pursuant to S.F. 389 and the recommendations of advisory committees established in 2008 by HF 2539. The audience included health system administrators, purchasers and payers, health policy researchers and analysts, public policy leaders, leaders of public interest organizations and representatives of health professional organizations, as well as faculty, staff and students interested in the health reform from a state perspective.

The symposium was held in the Coralville Marriott Hotel and Conference Center on Tuesday, July 20th, 2010 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM
