EAST LANSING, Mich., March 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A conference to explore the new voluntary employees' beneficiary association (VEBA) for United Auto Workers titled "VEBA is Shifting Michigan's Gears" will be presented by the Michigan State Medical Society (MSMS) on Thursday, April 3, from 1:00 to 4:30 p.m. at the Rock Financial Showplace in Novi.

Conference speakers will discuss the effects the VEBA will have on health care in Michigan, on the state's Medicaid program, on individual patients, and on physician practices. Attendees will include physicians of all specialties, administrators, executives, and other health care professionals.

The union perspective will be presented by Mark Gaffney, President of the Michigan AFL-CIO. The VEBA's influence over health plans will be discussed by Pat Richards, Chief Operating Officer of Health Alliance Plan. Thomas L. Simmer, MD, Senior Vice President and Chief Medical Director of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, will discuss patient wellness. Others will discuss the VEBA's legal framework as well as the history and future of VEBA's.

"MSMS will be one of the first organizations in the state to host a multi- stakeholder event to discuss the new VEBA that will put the UAW in charge of purchasing health insurance for its members," said Flint radiologist AppaRao Mukkamala, MD, president of the 16,000 physician-member MSMS. "This will be a major shift in how health care is administered for many patients and will have far-reaching effects."
