The DHS is hosting a public forum  entitled “Innovation, Coverage and Access: A Public Forum on the Repeal of the Affordable Care Act” on January 26.

Join state health care leaders, thinkers and advocates for a discussion on the ACA repeal and an analysis of what it means for Minnesota. 

Minnesota stands to lose $2 billion a year in federal funding, coverage for 300,000 people, nation-leading innovations and critical consumer protections. We need a thoughtful conversation about preserving our hard-earned progress toward a healthier Minnesota.

Presenters will include Minnesota Department of Human Services Commissioner Emily Piper, State Medicaid Director Marie Zimmerman and additional speakers to be announced.
