The 2021 HealthCare Roundtable
Although we had announced and were actively working toward an in-person conference in Alexandria, VA, the increased threat associated with the COVID 19 Delta variant, together with the reinstatement of travel restrictions among our members, has convinced us that an in-person conference is an inappropriate risk for everyone associated with our organization.
The 2021 Annual Conference will take place virtually on Monday, November 1 through Wednesday, November 3, 2021.
The conference agenda will largely follow the format we used for the 2020 Annual Conference. Although it’s certainly not the same as being together, the Roundtable’s highly-regarded annual conference will once again provide members and guests an opportunity to hear presentations by high level government officials and key experts – from Congress and the Administration, academics, benefit consultants, plan administrators, advocates and industry leaders.

NOTICE: As a result of the COVID-19 global pandemic, the Roundtable cancelled plans for a 3rd Annual Congressional Forum. In its place, the Roundtable has conducted a series of webinars intended to inform and mobilize members. Information regarding the 2019 Congressional Forum can be found here.
2nd Annual Congressional Forum
In order to advance the Public Sector Roundtable policy priorities and educate Congress and the Washington stakeholder community, the Roundtable convened a Congressional Forum on June 24-25, 2019 in Washington, DC. Public sector health care purchasers from across the United States participated in the Forum to share their policy priorities and to learn about key issues facing public sector purchasers.
The Forum – Drug Pricing Policy Solutions: Public Sector Options to Fix an Unsustainable System –featured a Keynote Address by Matthew (Matt) Eyles, President & Chief Executive Officer America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP), the presentation of the Roundtable’s 2019 Specialty Pharmacy Survey by Sean Douglass, and a panel presentation addressing Roundtable priorities. The panel included: A. Mark Fendrick, M.D., Professor of Internal Medicine in the School of Medicine and a Professor of Health Management and Policy in the School of Public Health at the University of Michigan, Katherine Herring Capps, President, Health2 Resources Co-Founder & Executive Director, GTMRx Institute, and Abigail (Abby) Duggan, Health Care Legislative Assistant Office of U. S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH).
Following the Capitol Hill briefing, a Roundtable delegation visited staff for U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and John O’Brien, Senior Advisor to the Secretary of Health and Human Services for Drug Pricing Policy. Other members visited their Congressional offices to discuss Roundtable priority issues.
