Policymakers are currently considering proposals to strengthen insurance markets and risk pools by establishing a reinsurance program or similar market-stabilizing mechanism. Such programs work by reimbursing health insurance providers a portion of the medical costs associated with providing coverage and care to high-cost and high-risk individuals. In this session, speakers will share their perspective and insights about federal and state experiences with reinsurance programs and examine program design and policy considerations.
Pending litigation will have a significant impact on the commercial insurance market including the individual and small group markets over the next year. As you plan for the upcoming year, learn about the opportunities and challenges for health insurance providers. In this session, speakers will share their perspectives on several current cases covering cost-sharing reductions, risk corridors payments, contraceptive coverage and non-discrimination rules among many others.
