Join Manatt for the First of Our Imperatives Deep-Dive Sessions on the Topics You Voted Most Important to You.

To benefit fully from America’s health care system, people need both timely access to health care services and comprehensive health coverage to defray the cost of those services. The COVID-19 pandemic has driven dramatic shifts in both access and coverage over the past few years. Despite a precipitous decline in in-person services during the pandemic, emergency policies at the federal and state levels actually increased access to coverage, as well as to many types of care. The major changes impacting access include the Medicaid “continuous coverage” requirement prohibiting states from disenrolling anyone from the Medicaid program, enhanced federal subsidies for commercial plans on the Marketplace, and an unprecedented surge in telehealth and home-based services.

In a new webinar—the first in our Imperatives series on the topics you voted most important to you—Manatt Health and an official from the Oregon Health Authority will review pandemic-related changes and their effects on the health care system. During the program, we also will look ahead to examine future trends, including activity by federal and state officials to plan for the end of the COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE) and implement longer-term reforms to promote access. Click here to register free and earn CLE. Key topics will include:

  • The ways PHE-related policies have altered access to health coverage, especially for Medicaid and the commercial market
  • Federal- and state-level plans for the end of the PHE, including the expiration of the Medicaid “continuous coverage” requirement
  • A case study of Oregon’s innovative proposal to minimize coverage losses and “churn” for individuals whose incomes fluctuate around the Medicaid eligibility cutoff
  • The Biden administration’s efforts to enhance the standards for provider networks and support timely access to services in Medicaid, Medicare and the commercial market
