Health Care Reform – What Now?
A panel of experts will provide an update of the key components of the Affordable Care Act and its implications relative to (1) employee benefit plan design, cost and compliance, and (2) the physician/hospital relationship. Among other topics, our distinguished panel will discuss
enrollment in the exchange and the impact on coverage in employee benefit plans, employer notice obligations, and new plan designs for 2014 for non‐grandfathered plans. Our panel will also discuss individual shared responsibility, eligibility for the premium credit, and insurance reform requirements in 2014 (such as guaranteed renewability, guaranteed availability and fair premiums). Finally, our panel will discuss the changing nature of the hospital/physician relationship and how reimbursement cuts and other financial pressures stemming from the Act are impacting physician compensation.
