Who Should Participate

Actuaries interested in U.S. health system and health care reform.


This discussion will review the historical roots of Medicaid, compare and contrast to its current size and scope, and review current issues as Medicaid is again at the crossroads in the debate on health reform. Going back to the original inception of Title XIX in 1965, experts will discuss how Medicaid was established in comparison to the vigorously debated Medicare program. They will then discuss the current role of Medicaid in the US health care system, including the current and anticipated market share of Medicaid.

The presentation will close with the current policy options being considered for the future financing and programmatic structure of Medicaid, and discuss actuarial issues that could arise within proposed frameworks. Actuarial issues to be discussed include risk transference, pricing issues and technical challenges.
