    Our guest speaker, David Johnson, Senior Vice President of RCM&D, will be joining us to talk about -

    Getting Ready for 2014: The Big Year for Healthcare Reform

    The Program

    Recent national survey data indicate that most employers feel their company is not well prepared to implement the 2014 provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).  Objectives for this program include helping participants understand (a) key changes coming in 2014 and (b) what they can do now to prepare for those changes.  Topics will include:

    • Projecting the financial impact of “shared responsibility rules” and potential employer penalties
    • Health insurance exchanges and their potential impact on employer provided coverage
    • Accountable Care Organizations and other delivery system changes impacting consumers
    • How employers are preparing for changes coming in 2014
