Good morning ... Quick reminder that the Sam Baker era of Vitals begins next week. I'll hand off to him after Labor Day, and he'll guide you through the next big stories in health care politics, business, and technology. I'll still pop up from time to time, probably in flashbacks or maybe a dream sequence.
What we're watching today: Govs. John Kasich and John Hickenlooper are expected to release their ACA stabilization plan.
What we're watching next week: Senate HELP Committee hearings on bipartisan ACA stabilization bill, Sept. 6 and 7; 2017 Wells Fargo Healthcare Conference in Boston, Sept. 6-7; markup of Senate funding bill for HHS, dates TBD.
Also, Kasich and Hickenlooper discuss their ACA proposal at a joint American Enterprise Institute-Center for American Progress event, Sept. 8. RSVP here.
What we're watching in September: Senate Finance Committee hearing on CHIP reauthorization. Also, Healthcare Security Forum, sponsored by the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society, Sept. 11-13.
