Top executives at Lawrence Memorial Hospital and Kansas University Hospital will participate Tuesday in a forum about Medicare reimbursement.

The speaker list includes Gene Meyer, chief executive officer at LMH, and Irene Cumming, president and chief executive officer at KU Hospital in Kansas City, Kan.

Meyer will discuss health care in rural areas and Cumming is to address graduate medical education.

The free forum is at 8:30 a.m. in Conference Room A at the Shawnee Mission Medical Center, 9100 W. 74th St., Merriam. It's sponsored by U.S. Rep. Dennis Moore, D-Kan.

The forum is designed to allow regional health-care providers to share with the public problems they have with new Medicare rules and how changes in the program may undermine patient care.
