    (Alden J. Bianchi, Panelist )

Alden Bianchi will be a panelist in the American Bar Association's teleconference, "Health Care Reform in the Wake of the Election."

The Supreme Court has ruled, the voters have spoken, the states are making decisions regarding Exchanges and Medicaid, the federal agencies are continuing to craft regulations, the political parties remain divided and the 2014 effective date for the main Affordable Care Act provisions is fast approaching. This program will review the current status of Health Care Reform, the reactions of the states and the road ahead for employers, administrators and providers.

  • Employer penalty and individual subsidies
  • Essential health benefits and minimum essential coverage
