Opening Discussion Topic:
With Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s passing, the unthinkable has happened: the entire Affordable Care Act – including Covered California, as the Golden State’s health insurance marketplace – established under the Act, could end up going to a Supreme Court with a very different composition than the one it had when the Act was passed – and has since been defended there, twice.
Today, nearly 2 million Californians can purchase their health insurance on the exchange, most of them at federally subsidized rates. Should the latest assault on the ACA go to a conservative-leaning Supreme Court.
Our Featured Member Presenter, Kathy Keeshen, is Chief Deputy Executive Director & General Counsel for Covered California, and knows well the major players and issues in The Case – California v. Texas – that’s scheduled to go before the Supreme Court the week after the election, with the potential to kill (or at least substantially change) the ability of millions of Californians to access health coverage – through Covered California and Medi-Cal’s expansion contained in the Act. In her role as Chief Deputy Executive Director & General Counsel for Covered California, Kathy oversees four Divisions: the Office of Legal Services; the External Affairs Office; the Program Integrity Division; and the Office of the Ombudsman. Her teams are dedicated to ensuring overall program compliance, while also providing guidance to Covered California’s Board of Directors, Executive Director, and executive leadership team.
In addition to sharing her perspective on what’s at stake in Washington, D.C., Kathy will share with us where Covered California is today, how it’s responded to the COVID-19 pandemic, and how it’s continued to enroll new members throughout the pandemic.
Our Group Discussion – during the last San Francisco ZOOM Table before the election – will be open to all the other major issues in the race that are keeping you up nights!
RSVP today to learn more about what else is in the balance within the next six weeks!
