The CAFE TA Center is pleased to present its newest online training.

Many consumer operated organizations recognize the need to reach out to youth and emerging adults and to include them as part of the consumer movement. At the same time, it can be a challenge to identify youth participants, and to help them develop a meaningful role in a given organization.

One successful tactic to encourage emerging adult involvement is the inclusion of youth and emerging adults on organizational Boards. By including emerging adults, consumer organizations can make their commitment to welcoming a new generation of leaders clear, while also creating a meaningful role for those emerging adults that can help them to feel involved and empowered.

Emerging Adults on Governance Boards will examine why to include emerging adult consumers, how to identify and recruit them, and how to create a welcoming environment that will facilitate their participation.

Under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), insurance plans offered through state insurance exchanges as well as non-grandfathered plans offered in the individual and small group markets - will be required to cover a set of health benefits and services called the "essential health benefits" package. Guidance issued last month by the Department of Health and Human Services will give each state some discretion to specify benefits package raises many questions. What is the task before states in selecting and designing "benchmark" plans that are comprehensive but also affordable? How will states incorporate state benefit mandates? What recommendations did the Institute of Medicine make on ensuring that health plans are affordable over time? To address these and related questions, the Alliance for Health Reform and The Commonwealth Fund sponsored a February 3 luncheon briefing.
