The current state of healthcare reform -- Are you ready?

Are you ready for the Healthcare reform?

If a bipartisan agreement is not reached by October 15th, a republican filibuster is not possible and healthcare reform is a done deal with 50 votes in the Senate. With the democrats holding 58 seats, it is irrational to think some level of reform will not happen this year. While it is difficult to predict what the final bill will look like, every reform proposal currently under consideration mandates individual coverage and ends barriers to coverage for people with preexisting medical conditions. If no other policy reforms are included in the final bill, the ramifications for the health insurance business are still tremendous.

How will Health Plans survive this direct hit on their current business model?

Through the vital restructuring of the healthcare delivery models they currently employ and the Next Generation Healthcare Delivery event, scheduled for October 26-27 in Washington, DC. This is your best opportunity to convene with other health plan leaders from across the nation to evaluate and integrate innovative healthcare delivery models to ensure sustainability and profitability in the years to come.

How will Health Plans expand coverage to previously uninsurable populations and maintain profitability?
