On April 11, 2016, the Virginia Health Care Foundation, in partnership with the Virginia Department of Medical Assistance Services and the Virginia Department of Social Services, hosted the 2016 Enrollment Summit. The focus was "Building a Healthier Virginia: Covering the Commonwealth’s Children."
Local Department of Social Services Families and Children and Cover Virginia Eligibility Supervisors, Navigators and Application Assisters, Child Health Advocates, and MCO Outreach Staff from across the Commonwealth came together for a day of networking and presentations by leading experts in the field of child health. Topics included national trends in child health insurance, working through the renewal process, strategies for working with Latino families, and exploring ways to work together to maximize the enrollment and retention of eligible children.
Thank you to all that attended this year’s summit!
