Medicaid in 2003: Weathering the Perfect Storm
February 7, 2003
This Forum session built on the publication of the January/February 2003 issue of Health Affairs, which was devoted to Medicaid. The session considered the current state of the Medicaid program, reflected on its successes and challenges, and offered thoughts about improving the payment structure and delivery system. Speakers offered their insights, based on a wide range of experiences, and provided a platform for discussion with and among participants about how the Medicaid program could be sustained.
