Effects of the November 2012 Election on Healthcare Reform
February 8, 2013
- While placing some limitations on the Medicaid expansion, the Supreme Court’s decision last June left most of the 2010 Affordable Care Act intact. With the Presidential election now behind us and the composition of the House and Senate known, it is a safe assumption that some form of healthcare reform will go into effect in 2014.
What does this mean for the states, insurers, providers and firms across the life sciences industry? This conference will help “shed some light” on upcoming key implementation steps and their ramifications. Government “insiders,” observers and industry professionals will be sharing their thoughts on the next phase in the transformation of the nation’s healthcare system.
