Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act: Impact of 2010 Midterm Elections
January 25, 2011 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CST
Paul H. Keckley, Ph.D., Executive Director, Deloitte Center for Health Solutions, John Bigalke, Vice Chairman and US National Industry Leader, Health Sciences & Government, and Steve Burrill, also of Deloitte LLP. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, passed March 23, 2010, is the law of the land; its repeal is unlikely though amendments, technical corrections, and changes are certain. At the federal level, implementation is proceeding with more than 77 major provisions already completed and dozens of others underway. In parallel, state legislators are tackling new responsibilities – oversight of insurance premiums, delivery system consolidation, creation of health exchanges, improvements in public health programs and more. The results of the mid-term election impact efforts at both the Federal and State levels even as the industry’s stakeholders create strategies to adapt to the “new normal”. In this session, we share with participants up-to-date insight about the implementation of PPACA, and provide direction about possible changes relevant to decision-makers in the industry.
