What is the TAHP Managed Care Conference & Trade Show?

The TAHP Annual Managed Care Conference draws decision makers from across the health care spectrum, from major plans and providers to regulators, legislators and their teams.

Driven by an agenda tailored to reflect the pressing issues of the day, presentations, panels and conversations cover the wide range of challenges and opportunities associated with implementing federal health reform, resolving Texas budget issues and refining legislative initiatives. The chance to take part in that discussion is a key part of the growing popularity of this conference.
