Preparing for Healthcare Exchanges
Date: February 13, 2013
Time: 2:30 p.m. ET
There is a lot of buzz in the market about healthcare exchanges. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act has resulted in the creation of state and federal public exchanges, while private exchanges are also being created. These private exchanges let employees purchase health plans -- using a defined amount of money provided by their employers, themselves or a combination -- that best meet their needs and those of their dependents. They represent a new trend commonly referred to as “defined contribution healthcare.” HR understandably has a lot of questions about what these exchanges may mean for their organizations.
Tracy Watts, a partner in Mercer’s Washington office and a nationally recognized expert on healthcare reform, will provide the answers to the most pressing questions HR executives have about these public and private exchanges from the potential plan member perspective and the employer perspective. By attending this webinar, HR leaders will gain insights into how private and public exchanges will play a role in health benefit delivery in the future and how employers may want to take advantage of these new options in 2014 and beyond.
