National Healthcare Reform Conference to Address Challenges of Reform and the Health Reform Bill

Industry News

With the passing of the Healthcare Reform Bill, PPACA, healthcare as we know it in the US has changed. Emotions run strong from people supporting it and those who oppose it. Healthcare reform made sweeping changes to the health insurance system and expanded health insurance coverage, but did so without addressing many of the underlying problems within our healthcare system that cause inefficiencies and increased healthcare costs. Such challenges have created a need for a platform to discuss solutions and answer. Renowned world leaders are gathering together National Healthcare Reform Conferencein Los Angeles.

The Patient Protection & Affordable Care Act will change the way many employees receive their coverage and affect the type of health plans workers are allowed to have. Many firms not currently offering coverage will face fines beginning in 2014, while some firms may find their plans do not meet new requirements, said Devon Herrick, Senior Fellow at the National Center for Policy Analysis. Conference attendees will learn about their obligations under the new law and how to navigate employers and employees options, he added.

Employers, Insurance Companies and Americans will have new challenges to face, as every American is affected differently by healthcare reform. People who are sick will see their health insurance costs go down as healthy Americans may see their prices increase, and older Americans will see their health insurance costs go down as younger Americans may see their prices increase.

Bringing together a dynamic and diverse group of health care leaders, government officials and industry experts, this Conference will engender thoughtful and timely discussion about how the landscape of health care is changing. I am pleased to be a part of this important opportunity to address the challenges and implications of the health care law for all Americans, said Therese Vaughan, CEO of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC).

The National Healthcare Reform Conference is the first conference in the US to address the problems, challenges and obstacles of implementing Healthcare Reform. The conference, which is sponsored by the Healthcare Reform Magazine,, will focus on how healthcare reform affects employers, insurers, insurance agents, healthcare providers and patients and will peel back the onion of the thousands of pages of healthcare reform bill to look at how different aspects of health care reform will really work.
