Conference Sessions Focus on the Presidential Election and its Impact on Managed Medicaid
August 29, 2012—Mt. Olive, NJ—
The Sixth Annual Pinsonault Managed Markets Summit taking place September 19-21 at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas will focus on Managed Medicaid and the impact the presidential election may have on the country’s largest source of health coverage for people with lower incomes, senior citizens and individuals with disabilities.
“Today there is a movement from Fee for Service to Managed Medicaid with 75 percent of the Medicaid beneficiaries currently enrolled in a Managed Medicaid Plan,” said Kjel Johnson, Pharm.D., Senior Vice President of Strategy & Business Development, Magellan Pharmacy Solutions. “Because of this, pharmaceutical and biotech manufacturers need to be better prepared to understand the special pharmacy needs of this population and the Managed Markets Summit is the ideal venue to do just that.”
During these high-value presentations, attendees will learn about the challenges and advantages that lie ahead from top executives who will breakdown these issues and discuss the ramifications that will change the nation’s healthcare landscape.
