Health reform and 'infrastructure proposals' on agenda
Wonder if DMC will be on the agenda?
Human Services commissioner to visit Rochester to discuss Gov. Dayton’s health reform and infrastructure proposals
Human Services Commissioner Lucinda Jesson will travel to Rochester Tuesday, March 5, to discuss important investments in Gov. Mark Dayton’s proposed budget and other strategies to improve Minnesota’s health care infrastructure.
Jesson will lead a panel discussion, “Investing in Minnesota’s Health Care Future,” with representatives from the southeast Minnesota health care community. Panelists include Lawrence Massa, president and CEO, Minnesota Hospital Association; Rachelle Schultz, president and CEO, Winona Health; Paul Fleissner, director, Olmsted County Community Services; and Douglas L. Wood, M.D., director for strategy and policy at the Mayo Clinic Center for Innovation
Dayton’s proposed budget includes several initiatives to provide better levels of health care coverage and services to Minnesotans using policy tools within the federal Affordable Care Act. Under the proposals, the rate of Minnesotans without health care insurance would be cut in half over the next few years. The panel will discuss the impact of these proposals on southeastern Minnesota. They will also assess the workforce and other infrastructure necessary to serve these new enrollees.
