Dec. 12 Atlantic Information Services Webinar to Address the Nuances of New HHS Essential Health Benefits Regulations
Date:12/5/2012

Washington, DC (PRWEB) December 05, 2012

With HHS’s recently issued rules on essential health benefits (EHBs), the health care industry now has specific guidance on the benefits options that will be offered via insurance exchanges in January 2014. In Atlantic Information Services's upcoming Dec. 12 webinar, “New HHS Essential Health Benefits Regulation: Insurance Exchange Strategies for Health Plans, Hospitals and Other Providers, and Brokers and Agents,” a three-person panel of experts will explain how organizations can translate this landmark regulation into success in the new health care marketplace.

The highlights of this long-awaited guidance have already made headlines everywhere, including HHS increasing the requirement in its previous draft on prescription drug coverage and a more flexible approach on plans having to meet a particular “metal” level with their offerings. But understanding the nuances will be critical for organizations interested in taking full advantage of the enormous opportunities ahead, with nearly 30 million exchange enrollees anticipated by 2019.

During this Dec. 12 webinar, Chip Kerby, an attorney at Liberté Group LLC, L.J. (Mac) McCarthy, president of McCarthy Actuarial Consulting, and Michelle Mudge-Riley, M.D., a physician, senior consultant and associate with McCarthy Actuarial Consulting will discuss what the essential benefits regulation means for health plans, hospitals and other providers, agents and brokers, and state health officials. In 60 minutes of presentations, and a concluding, 30-minute question-and-answer session, they will answer questions such as:

  • What are the key new issues to focus on?
  • How effectively will plans be able to meet the final rule’s requirements on prescription drug coverage? What are the major obstacles?
  • How will the role of brokers and agents change now that the final guidance is out?
  • What problems are likely to exist as health plans scramble to organize their exchange products in the limited time remaining?
  • To what extent did the final rule ease health plan concerns over product pricing? Will the new guidance force reassessments up and down the market?
  • Do states now have too much control over EHBs? Will increased state authority threaten a consistent and comprehensive level of coverage for people across the country?
  • How were controversial coverage issues, like mandatory contraceptive care, dealt with in the final rule? Where are conflicts likely to remain?
  • To what extent did the insurance industry win in its quest for HHS to exclude state-mandated benefit requirements that go above and beyond the reform law’s 10 categories? What should be the impact?
