Save the Date! 2020 NYHPA Conference on November 17, 18 and 19th - LIVE VIRTUAL EVENT

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and uncertainty pertaining to large gatherings, the New York Health Plan Association’s 2020 Annual Conference – Decision 2020: What it Means for the Future of Health Care — will take place over 3 days as a virtual online event.

We invite you to join us as we focus on the November elections and how they will affect health care in New York and across the country. Panels featuring national and local experts will also examine how the public health crisis caused by the coronavirus may change our health care system including its impact on costs, access and affordability, efforts to address the opioid crisis, and an examination of single payer health care.
