Washington, DC (PRWEB) December 09, 2013
When the Obama administration reversed course last month to ease the requirement that all nongrandfathered individual and small-group health insurance policies be compliant with the Affordable Care Act (ACA) on Jan. 1, it unleashed a wave of decision making by state insurance commissioners and health plan operators. In the Dec. 18 webinar, “Obama’s One-Year Delay: Actuarial Implications and Impact on Health Plans,” participants will learn what impact the delay is likely to have for the bottom line of health plans.
A team of Milliman actuaries — Hans Leida, Ph.D., FSA, MAAA, Doug Norris, Ph.D., FSA, MAAA, and Mary van der Heijde, FSA, MAAA — will help participants identify the most effective strategies amid these 11th-hour ACA changes. In 60 minutes of expert presentations followed by 30 minutes devoted to individual questions, participants will gain valuable perspectives on these and other big-dollar issues:
- What are the immediate challenges for carriers that have decided to extend coverage? What are the potential consequences for those that don’t?
- Do carriers risk losing market share by not extending cancelled policies?
- What do carriers need to know to accurately price plans for 2015?
- What will the delay mean for health plan risk profiles, management and operations?
- How will the ACA’s transitional risk corridor program compensate carriers if the extended plans negatively impact the risk pool?
- What do carriers, brokers and benefits consultants need to know to explain the extension to members?
