Medicaid Reform and Expansion Panel Writeup

NC NOW still sees the need to expand Medicaid and is worried about the plans to reform Medicaid.  A few of us attended a panel “Medicaid Reform and Expansion: A Panel Discussion” on April 20th, 2016 at the NCSU McKimmon Conference Center (starting at 7:30pm).  This League of Women Voters (LWV) sponsored event featured a panel discussion about Medicaid reform and expansion in North Carolina. Panelists were Susan Shumaker, President of the Cone Health Foundation; Rob Luisana of Pilot Benefits; and Representative Marilyn Avila, House District 40 (R-Wake).  Dr. Jim Foster was the moderator and MC (he is standing at the podium in this picture).  Dr. Foster is a Retired Cardiologist, and a member of the LWV-ODC.
