Event Synopsis:

The Patient Protection & Affordable Care Act was a key factor in the November 2010 election results. Republicans have taken control of the House of Representatives promising to change the controversial new law.

What does political change mean for the Patient Protection & Affordable Care Act? Will Republicans push a “Repeal and Replace” strategy? Or is the “Chip Away” alternative more viable? What aspects of PPACA are likely to be the main targets? What amendments will most impact carriers? And what might be the role of the States in affecting implementation of healthcare reform?

These and other compelling questions will be answered in this timely analysis of healthcare reform and the impact of political change—what to expect in 2011.
