This online training will examine where health reform now stands in light of recent legislative and administrative changes, the outlook for additional policy initiatives in 2018 along with their market impact on payers and providers, and who will be the principal industry winners and losers in the ever changing heath reform environment.

Course Objectives:

Though the GOP majority succeeded in repealing the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate as part of a massive tax bill enacted at the end of last year, the reality going forward is that what remains of the ACA is still functioning fairly well and ironically, leaves the government playing an even larger role under the health law than ever envisioned when passed by Congress n 2010. Looking ahead to 2018, expect Republican lawmakers and the Trump Administration to continue to push for reforms via a scattergun approach that utilizes rule making, executive actions, regulatory waivers federal funding and judicial rulings to further obstruct the ACA including repeal of ACA taxes and expand consumer choice for health insurance. This scenario will produce some discernible winners and losers among health plans and providers as the influence of public policy proposals and changes become more important in reshaping the larger healthcare system.

Course Outline:

• Explain the market effect from repeal of the ACA individual mandate plus other administrative actions taken by the Trump Administration
