Institute Course Helps Unravel Mysteries of Health Care Reform
Now that federal health care reform is a reality, there have been a lot of questions surrounding its implications on county health and human services systems. For the more than 70 county officials representing 29 counties who attended today’s course conducted by the CSAC Institute for Excellence in County Government, a lot of these questions were answered.
The course focused on two specific areas: 1) how county health services and funding will be affected, and 2) what the new law will mean for county clients, particularly those on Medicaid or indigent care. Panel discussions led by experts in the health and human services arena centered on such issues as health care delivery issues, fiscal impacts, the county as an employer, and where health care in California is headed.
Due to the growing interest in this course, the Institute will also be offering the class in Southern California (Burbank) on March 3.
We would like to thank the California HealthCare Foundation, which provided a grant to help make these courses a reality. And, of course, a special thanks to our instructors who shared their expertise today in Sacramento and again in Burbank next month.
