This year has been one of great uncertainty, dominated by threats at the federal level to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, cut Medicaid, restrict access to essential health services, and target immigrants. Please join us for our annual CLE Seminar - a unique opportunity to hear about the impact of these threats and the continuing work to defend and improve the healthcare system in Washington State. The day will include a session on public benefits available to Washington immigrants, and ethical considerations when working with clients with diminished capacity or other barriers.

Who should attend

This seminar is designed for attorneys, paralegals, social workers, insurance brokers, health care providers, policymakers, and others who assist individuals in matters related to health insurance and health care.
