Entry Description

STATEHOUSE (July 10, 2013)— State Sen. Ron Grooms (R-Jeffersonville) will represent Indiana at a regional health-care conference next week to discuss state policies relating to the federal Affordable Care Act roll out and other vital health issues facing the nation.

Grooms was appointed to the Council of State Governments’ Health and Human Services Committee by Indiana Senate President Pro Tem David Long earlier this year. The annual committee is made up of representatives from across the Midwest, including legislators and policy experts who will gather to discuss ideas and solutions to improve health care at the state level.

“One of the biggest policy concerns facing our generation and future generations is how we will respond to rising demand and costs for health care in a way that is fiscally responsible and effective,” said Grooms, a practicing pharmacist for more than 40 years. “Many questions remain surrounding the implementation of the Affordable Care Act and it is important to have an open dialogue with our neighboring states to find the best solutions for Hoosiers going forward.”

Grooms said the committee will also discuss health policy ideas for senior citizens and those with mental illness.

This year’s conference will be held July 14-17 in St. Paul, Minn.
