The inaugural meeting of the California Health Benefit Exchange Board is scheduled for April 20 in Sacramento. Though we are still one appointment shy of a full governance board, there’s some real buzz that the very first meeting of the Exchange has been scheduled!
The agenda for the meeting is available on the Exchange website. Click here to check it out. A five hour meeting is planned, so it appears that a lot of ground will be covered from election of a chair, planning grants, and schedule of future meetings as well as some staffing issues.
Exchange Board meetings will be public meetings and public testimony will be taken for each agenda item. This is an important opportunity to ensure that consumer voices are represented in the early stages of planning and implementing.
