Please join us in thanking leaders of the Senate Chronic Care Working Group for their efforts to improve care for patients with multiple chronic conditions. The chronic care provisions of the Bipartisan Budget Act provide better targeting of services for Medicare beneficiaries living with chronic conditions, improved integration of Medicare and Medicaid services, and greater access to telehealth services. Following remarks by the Senators, we’ll hear from the administration and a panel of experts on the issues key to implementing the law and next steps for improving care for patients.

The CHRONIC Care Act includes a number of provisions that align with BPC’s Policy Roadmap for Individuals With Complex Care Needs and  other  related reports.

The event will be webcast.
