As health plans prepare for future changes, this session will examine key dynamics of the health insurance market and provide insight on how your company can best be prepared for an uncertain future.
Congress and the new Administration are moving forward with making major changes to the Affordable Care Act. Amid a fluid and uncertain legislative and regulatory environment, this session will assess efforts to make changes to the ACA and reform the individual market—with a focus on the current policy alternatives and options under consideration in Congress. In addition, this session will assess potential changes though the regulatory process aimed at stabilizing markets this year and beyond.
This session will examine operational and policy issues related to the implementation of the ACA’s risk-adjustment program. Risk adjustment plays an important role in promoting market stability, a level playing field for health insurers, and affordable coverage options – particularly for those patients with chronic health conditions. Regulations finalized late last year were designed to improve the predictability of the model and deliver more accurate payments. Panelists will discuss and assess the experience of the risk-adjustment program to date, and offer public policy changes that can promote further enhancements and improvements.
The individual health insurance market — which represents an important source of coverage for millions of Americans — has undergone tremendous change since the passage of the health reform law. While it serves more than 18 million Americans, the individual market has faced challenges for many years. Higher average premiums for 2017, fewer health plan choices, lower-than-expected exchange enrollment, and risk pool challenges in certain states and markets have complicated coverage options for millions of consumers. This session will review current challenges facing the individual health insurance markets and policy options that can help promote greater stability and affordability for patients and families.
States have had a lead role over health insurance for many years – and Congress and the new Administration have signaled an even larger role in the future. Hear how state policymakers are planning to navigate an ever-changing landscape, and their priorities to deliver quality, affordable coverage for their citizens.

States that expanded Medicaid under the ACA have seen a dramatic reduction in uninsured rates.
