California Partnership for Access to Treatment Event Recap

Posted by Kassy Perry

On Tuesday, April 3, 2012, the California Partnership for Access to Treatment (CPAT) hosted luncheon seminars on the California Health Benefit Exchange (HBEX) in Sacramento and Riverside, managed by Perry Communications Group and Cerrell Associates. Five weeks later, on Tuesday, May 8, 2012 in Oakland, there was a luncheon facilitated by AC Public Affairs on the same topic. Altogether, the three seminars drew 265 attendees, including 87 views of the Sacramento seminar’s footage on YouTube (click here to view). The Sacramento and Oakland seminars featured Kim Belshé. Richard Figueroa of the California Endowment presented in Riverside.

Given the interest in the topic, CPAT began planning a webinar to accommodate interested parties from other parts of the state who could not attend the previous seminars. Kim Belshé agreed to speak to CPAT members and advocates, including small business organizations, following the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision on the Affordable Care Act.

The webinar, on Thursday, July 26, drew 82 participants during the 90 minute presentation and Q&A. CPAT and PCG will continue to provide information on the HBEX and help groups and stakeholders to engage in the planning and implementation. Download the program materials.
