About the Health Care Access Forum

The Hemophilia Council of California (HCC) has a long history of hosting quarterly forums to bring together leaders and advocates from specialty pharmacies, Hemophilia Treatment Centers, community organizations and statewide health programs. This environment has fostered communication and collaboration among bleeding disorder stakeholders from throughout the state in the interest of establishing, broadening and maintaining access to care for our patients.

2017 forum members heard reports from top Department of Health Care Services executives overseeing the Genetically Handicapped Persons Program (GHPP) and California Children’s Services (CCS). Attendees also heard updates on SB 586 implementation, the Medi-Cal Pharmacy Unit, and pharmacy billing information from Conduent. HCC’s longtime legislative advocate, Terri Cowger Hill shared insights on the DHCS reorganization, proposed pharmacy reimbursement changes, threats to the Affordable Care Act and HCC’s 2018 policy focus.

In 2018, forum members will continue to liaise with bleeding disorder patient advocates from Hemophilia Treatment Centers, private specialty care pharmacies, state-run health care insurance program executives, statewide health organization leaders and even more industry professionals.

Annual Health Care Access Forum membership is $1,500 for the year, open to industry professionals and stakeholders, and includes two seats at the quarterly Forums held February 22nd, May 2nd (in association with Legislative Day), August 16th, and December 6th in Sacramento, one admission to the annual Health Policy Summit in Sacramento August 16th, and access to HCC’s team for help with bleeding disorder patient healthcare access.
