Over the next few years, the US will experience transformative changes to its healthcare system which will have a deep and unprecedented impact on insurance carriers and group health plans. In an effort to stabilize the transition, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) introduced the Transitional Reinsurance Program under the Affordable Care Act. The program is aimed at stabilizing premiums in the individual health insurance market from 2014 through 2016, with funding for the program coming from assessments on fully insured and self-funded commercial health plans. To ensure compliance, plan sponsors and third party administrators need to have a complete understanding of the significant topics surrounding the transitional reinsurance program.
A panel of distinguished thought leaders will share their opinions in a two-hour teleconference and webinar. They will discuss the most important components of the program as well their impact on the health insurance business. A live interaction with the audience in a question and answer format is also included in this event.
