The elections are over and the balance of power has shifted in Washington, D.C. Will there be significant changes, or will things just continue as usual? Significant parts of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) have been implemented, but major additional requirements are scheduled to take effect over the next few years. The Republicans have vowed to repeal all or part of the law, and have even filed their own lawsuit over it, but what parts of the law have the greatest possibility of actually changing?
Meanwhile, the Supreme Court has agreed to hear another case that could significantly affect applicability of the law. At issue is whether premium tax credits are only permitted in states that are running their own exchange -- a significant issue, since only one-third of the states are running their own exchanges. While no one knows what the Supreme Court will decide, how could this affect businesses and individuals?
Join us for this 75-minute webinar as Jessica Waltman, Senior Vice President, Government Affairs, of the National Association of Health Underwriters, discusses what is happening in Washignton, D.C., the possibility of changes, some of the reasons behind the regulator and legislative agendas, and what employers can expect over the coming months. As a result of her position, Jessica Waltman has a unique perspective on what is happening and may happen in Congress, with the regulatory agencies, and at the Supreme Court.
