Less than a year into the current administration, we’ve seen several changes in health law, policy, and regulations. What are those changes?  Which changes are temporary, driven primarily by COVID response? Which are intended to be permanent? What are the administration’s priorities for additional changes and improvements related to health care service delivery, affordability and scope of health insurance coverage, and more? 

Federal policies, funding streams, and regulatory/waiver authority related to health and healthcare -- whether focused on Medicaid, Medicare, CHIP, or the Affordable Care Act -- have a significant impact on system change and service delivery. These changes can reshape priorities at the state and local level, while providing critical opportunities to support and catalyze reform.

Join us for a discussion on federal developments since the beginning of the Biden Administration, the prospects for passage of additional health and safety net legislation, and other next-in-line priorities.


  • Changes in health policy and regulations made temporarily by the American Rescue Plan Act and its impact on health care affordability
  • The “family glitch” and the potential for action by the Treasury Department to address it
  • Center for Medicaid and Medicare Innovation’s re-evaluation of demonstration projects and waivers
  • The future of changes adopted under the "public health emergency," such as the reimbursability of telehealth visits
  • Initiatives under discussion addressing disparities in maternal and infant mortality, better alignment of primary and behavioral health care, etc.
  • Plans for new intiatives, such as promoting health equity, addressing health disparities (e.g., maternal/infant health), or integrating behavioral and physical health care
