The SCC is excited to announce that Jason Helgerson, New York State's Medicaid Director and Deputy Commissioner of the Office of Health Insurance Programs, will offer the keynote presentation.

New York's Medicaid program provides vital health care services to over 5 million New Yorkers and has an annual budget in excess of $54 billion. Mr. Helgerson also leads Governor Cuomo's effort to fundamentally reshape the state's Medicaid program in order to both lower costs and improve health care quality under the Medicaid Redesign Team.
