Arkansas' State Plan Amendment that authorizes the Medicaid Expansion program—currently known as Arkansas Works—expires on December 31, 2021. This session will provide a history of the Medicaid Expansion program, which was created in 2013 as the Arkansas Private Option, and will discuss the reasons that continuing the program will remain the AHA's number one legislative priority. We'll also discuss other legislative topics that may impact hospitals and the healthcare delivery system, including public policy and legislative issues related to improving population health, access, and coverage through Medicaid and other programs, improving value, addressing consumer issues and workforce shortages, commercial payor relationships, and more.
