This event is not included in the program registration. There is an additional fee, limited attendance, and pre-registration is required.
As the fourth Open Enrollment period begins, proponents and opponents of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) continue to make the case for the success and failure of the Exchanges. The upcoming year is a pivotal one for the Exchange market as the reinsurance and risk corridor programs end, certain plans exit the marketplace, and regulators look to develop policies that will protect consumers while keeping coverage options affordable. At this luncheon, the speakers will provide an in-depth look at the state of the commercial market and the Exchanges, specifically focusing on timely and relevant topics for attorneys representing payers. The session will provide practical insights regarding the 2017 regulatory environment; the current state of network adequacy regulation; third party payment of premiums; the state of the risk adjustment and risk corridor programs; and ACA-related litigation. The speakers will also discuss the changes for 2017 in the business environment in the Exchange market, including changes in plan participation and premiums.
