Commonwealth North Health Care Action Coalition,
Our next meeting will be Thursday, September 29 from 7-9am in the newly constructed Health Sciences Building located at 3795 Piper St. in the WWAMI conference room located on the third floor. We will be joined by Bruce Lamoureux, Providence Hospital, Jim Jordan, Alaska State Medical Association, and Mark Foster, Mark A Foster and Associates. We will be discussing Medicaid and how we may be able to preemptively find solutions to this growing problem. The number of Alaskans on Medicaid is projected to increase while already costing the state over a billion dollars. Each of our speakers will address Medicare from their own perspective and what they see the greatest potential to tackling this issue in Alaska.
If you would like to call into this meeting the call in number will be 907-276-4900.
