With the health insurance marketplaces and Medicaid expansion set to bring affordable health coverage to millions more Americans starting in January 2014, many states are eager to identify long-term, transformative ways to reduce health spending while also improving quality of care. Building on a Commonwealth Fund–sponsored meeting of policymakers from 16 states in May 2013, the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices will convene officials from all 50 states, along with federal officials and outside experts, for a day-and-a-half meeting to facilitate state efforts to plan and implement health system transformation. This grant will support the attendance of three officials from each state and produce a brief that lays out the principal challenges states face and strategies for moving forward. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation will provide cofunding.
