Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) have been long-standing, high-quality coverage options for millions of families, offering low- or no-cost, comprehensive and child-specific plans. Today, however, so much is changing—affordability of family health coverage, questions of equity and eligibility and a growing conversation about how we provide better value to improve population health.

This roundtable will seek to outline effective, evidence-informed policy issues and solutions ripe for action and collaboration, which maintain equitable, high insurance rates among our nation’s children, allowing them to be their healthiest selves.

Speakers will include:

    Joan Alker, Executive Director and Co-founder of the Center for Children and Families at Georgetown University
    Dr. Tyra Bryant-Stephens, faculty member at PolicyLab and Medical Director of the Community Asthma Prevention Program at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia
    Doug Jacobs, Chief Innovation Officer at the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services
    Kathy Ko Chin, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Asian & Pacific Islander American Health Forum
    Dr. David Rubin, Director of PolicyLab and Population Health Innovation at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia

The discussion is being held as the American Public Health Association holds its annual conference in Philadelphia. To register, go here.
