There is a wide array of interesting topics to choose from, and the ability to assemble a group of individuals lets you extend and amplify the value of the program.

With President Obama's reelection, health care reform will move toward full implementation.
Our February Video Teleconference features a distinguished panel of experts discussing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and what it will mean for consumers, providers, and advisors. The panel will focus on main issues such as: state-based exchanges; episodes of care; and the "pay or play" feature. If you are in any way connected to the health care business, you will need to know how to advise your clients on these and related issues under the law.
Attendees will learn about:
What the Affordable Care Act will mean for their business
State-based exchanges as a way to help insurers meet consumer protection requirements
How an episode-of-care payment system will work
The implications of "pay or play" (payments as alternatives to buying coverage)
What the role of an agent will be in the health care reform environment penalty
