Washington, DC (PRWEB) November 07, 2012
On Nov. 15, a week after Election Day, three veteran health policy analysts will discuss how the balance of political power in Washington and state capitals will impact the implementation of the health reform law in “What Will the November Election Mean for Health Reform?” a webinar sponsored by Atlantic Information Services, Inc.
Health insurers, their partners and competitors have never faced a period of greater change, uncertainty and potential turmoil, with experts calling the 2012 U.S. elections the most significant for stakeholders in 50 years. What is likely to happen to exchanges, subsidies, guaranteed issue, accountable care, Medicare changes, Medicaid expansion and other major reform initiatives as the current power mix continues, with a Democratic President, Republican-controlled House and neither party having a filibuster-proof edge in the Senate.
In “What Will the November Election Mean for Health Reform?” Timothy Stoltzfus Jost, J.D., who holds the Robert L. Willett Family Professorship of Law at the Washington and Lee University School of Law, Bruce Merlin Fried, a partner in SNR Denton’s Health Care practice, and Robert Laszewski, president of Health Policy and Strategy Associates, will discuss the election’s impact on:
- The implementation of health insurance exchanges
- The reform law-mandated expansion of Medicaid
- Medicare-Medicaid dual eligible demonstrations
- Medicare Advantage payment reforms
- Accountable care initiatives
- Large new taxes assessed on insurers and medical device makers
- The role of brokers and agents
- Implementation of other key reform provisions
