After the Affordable Care Act: Where Do We Go From Here?
The 2016 election has created a new level of uncertainty for health care in the U.S.
With President-Elect Donald Trump vowing to overturn some or all of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the U.S. will likely experience transformative changes to its healthcare system that will have a deep and unprecedented impact on insurance carriers and group health plans. But the ACA is complex and has so broad a scope that "turning the clock back" to the pre-ACA world is not possible
In this one-hour LIVE Webcast, a panel assembled by The Knowledge Group will present a backgrounder on the ACA and its key components – Risk Adjustments, Reinsurance and Risks Corridors (collectively known as the 3Rs) – and give an assessment of the law’s achievements and shortcomings. The program will also look at the sunset of certain ACA provisions, the possible changes to be wrought by the Trump administration, the possible replacements and how all of this might impact the healthcare industry and consumers.
