Washington, DC (PRWEB) January 14, 2016
After a one-year delay, qualified health plans must submit data on cost-sharing reduction reconciliations to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services starting this spring. On Jan. 26, Atlantic Information Services, Inc. (AIS) and Softheon Inc. will present “Cost-Sharing Reduction Reconciliation: Strategies for QHPs Submitting Data This Spring,” a complimentary webinar that will examine and assess CMS’s new rules on CSR reconciliation and the related political and actuarial context.
In an hour-long program, including 15 minutes dedicated to answering individual questions, Jon Kingsdale, Ph.D., of Wakely Consulting Group, Eugene Sayan, founder and CEO of Softheon, and Peter Polgar, growth strategy and business development manager of Softheon, will offer insider perspectives on key questions, including:
- What is the political context for these requirements? Why did Congress decide on CSRs in the first place, and how might the House of Representatives lawsuit affect CSRs?
- What is the financial context? How many dollars are “in play” and which way will they flow?
- What challenges will health plans face in adapting to the new regulations and processes set forth by CMS? What specific processes must health plans perform?
- What are the pros and cons for your organization of the Simplified Method versus the Standard Method for meeting the CSR reconciliation requirements?
- What steps should QHP issuers take to reconcile payments, manage exceptions, create adjustments and monitor this new process?
- How were interim payments estimated for 2014? How do they work?
