As congressional leaders work on proposals to expand health coverage to the nation’s nearly 50 million uninsured, a key issue is how to reach low-income and high-need Americans who do not qualify for the Medicaid program but are unlikely to be able to afford or qualify for private insurance on their own. At 9:30 a.m. ET on May 12, the Kaiser Family Foundation will host a briefing to examine potential strategies for building on the Medicaid program to cover these populations as part of broader health reform efforts.

The briefing, “Covering Low-Income and High-Need Americans: Medicaid as a Platform for Health Reform,” will feature new research examining the cost and coverage trade-offs of policy options to extend Medicaid to more low-income people and what changes are necessary to enable the program to serve as a base for larger reform.

The briefing features John Holahan, Director of the Health Policy Research Center, Urban Institute, presenting the key findings. Sheila Burke, Faculty Research Fellow, Harvard Kennedy School of Government, Karen Ignagni, President and CEO, America’s Health Insurance Plans, and Alan Weil, Executive Director, National Academy for State Health Policy, will offer perspective. Diane Rowland, Executive Vice-President, Kaiser Family Foundation and Executive Director, Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured, will serve as moderator.
