The 2023 NPA Spring Policy Forum will be held March 27-28 at the Mayflower Hotel, Autograph Collection, in Washington, DC. The two-day event will offer attendees opportunities to learn about and advocate for issues of interest to PACE – now and in the future – and to network with their peers. On-site registration will be available.

Members of Congress, federal agency officials and thought leaders have been invited to share their perspectives on policies and cross-cutting topics impacting both the PACE model of care and the environment in which PACE programs operate. You can view the forum agenda and speakers.

Featured Speakers

Chiquita Brooks-LaSure, administrator of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), heads the list of featured speaker at this year's forum. She will speak on the opening day of the forum, sharing her vision for Medicare and Medicaid and how PACE fits into those frameworks.

Jeff Colyer, MD, is chair of the National Advisory Committee on Rural Health and Human Services, which provides guidance to the secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. He will speak on “Expanding Access to PACE in Rural Areas,” sharing the findings of a report about PACE that soon will be released by his committee.

Tyler Overstreet Cromer, principal and head of Medicare Innovation Practice at ATI Advisory, will present “Current Trends in Medicare Advantage,” discussing current developments in Medicare Advantage and the potential impact on PACE organizations.

Capitol Hill Day

In addition to the forum programming, we hope you will join us for Capitol Hill Day on Tuesday, March 28. It is critical that the new Congress hears directly from the PACE community about our priorities and needs. If you would like NPA to schedule visits with your members of Congress on your behalf, please contact Francesca Fierro O’Reilly, vice president of Advocacy at NPA, at your earliest convenience.

If you plan to join us for Capitol Hill Day, NPA invites you to attend a preparatory webinar on Monday, March 20, at 4-5 p.m. ET. Advance registration is required. We will review our congressional requests (the “asks”) and share details on the policy driving them. Tips on scheduling and managing your Capitol Hill meetings also will be provided, as well as an opportunity to ask questions. The webinar will provide everything you need to be well prepared for your congressional meetings. The event will be recorded for on-demand viewing.
