At this month's meeting, subcommittee members will hear from speakers representing hospitals, health insurers, and the Montana Healthcare Foundation, as well as the former Montana Medicaid director and a national health care consultant who has worked with federally qualified health centers.

The meeting will begin at 8:30 a.m. in Room 102 of the Capitol in Helena.  It will be streamed live on the legislative website, For more information about the meeting, including a full agenda, visit the committee's website or contact Sue O'Connell, committee staff.
