WASHINGTON DC USA -- HEALTHCARE UPDATE NEWS SERVICE™ -- MARCH 21, 2023: The Virtual Fourth National Medicare Advantage Summit will take place on April 25-28, 2023 as a purely virtual event. Upon consultation with the Summit planning committee, the decision was made to offer the Summit as a virtual event again in 2023 because the majority of health care providers are in significant financial distress as they emerge from the pandemic and are facing staffing shortages and expense increases and supply chain challenges.
