Geiger Gibson 2023 Webinars 

As part of our ongoing health policy webinar program, the Geiger Gibson Program is pleased to offer a  new four-part webinar series  beginning in July 2023  for community health centers, health center networks, and state and regional primary care associations.

The sessions will focus on some of today’s most pressing health policy issues including Medicaid unwinding, pending Supreme Court  decisions and challenges, and women’s health.

Webinars will be hosted by faculty of the Geiger Gibson Program, and will feature presentations and robust discussion with health policy experts  from within the Geiger Gibson program and the Milken Institute SPH as well as health center movement leadership.

Session 1: Monday, July 31st, 12:00 noon-1:00p.m. EDT

Medicaid Unwinding Update

During the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency (PHE), states were incentivized under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act to keep Medicaid beneficiaries continuously enrolled, but recent legislation de-linked Medicaid enrollment from the PHE and allowed states to begin eligibility redeterminations in April. Recent analyses estimate that up to 15 million Medicaid enrollees will lose Medicaid coverage by the end of this redetermination process. The Medicaid "unwinding" is expected to have significant ramifications for community health centers, which rely heavily on Medicaid revenue. Speakers will provide updates on the policy changes and impacts to date.

What is the status of Braidwood? And  what are the potential effects?

A challenge to the Affordable Care Act, Braidwood Mgmt. Inc. v. Becerra poses a threat to one of the law’s most popular features -  its requirement for preventive services coverage including ACIP-recommended immunizations, preventive care for children, preventive health care for women, and other essential screenings. Overturning the ACA preventive services requirement will  have significant implications for coverage of a broad range of clinical preventive services and impede access to key services, potentially affecting community health significantly.
