JOIN THE NEW YORK HEALTH PLAN ASSOCIATION and more than 200 health care professionals on Thursday, November 16th at the Hilton Garden Inn, Troy, NY, for a dynamic one day event:The State of Healthcare: What’s Next for Healthcare Policy.

During these turbulent times in healthcare it’s more important than ever to  hear and learn from industry and policy leaders about the current and future direction of healthcare policy both at the national and state level. The 2017 NYHPA Annual Conference provides an opportunity to learn more about proposed changes to the current system and how it will impact health plans. Panel discussions will explore where we need to be heading in healthcare as well as the shifting landscape of health policy in New York State and the challenges and opportunities this creates for health plans. Keynote Speaker Avik Roy, President of the Foundation for Research and Equal Opportunity and an Opinion Editor at  Forbes, a passionate believer in the conservative case for universal coverage, the idea that markets and competition can bring quality health care to every American, is sure to provide a thought provoking presentation.
