Program Materials

This CLE webinar will prepare counsel for healthcare providers to guide clients in adapting to the new health insurance exchanges. The panel will explain how the exchanges are working in 2014—and how to overcome the new challenges presented in order to maximize reimbursement and effectively manage the interplay between Medicaid coverage and managed care contracts.

Description

As the Affordable Care Act's health insurance exchanges roll out, enrollees are signing up for health insurance on the federal and 17 state-run exchanges. Counsel to providers need to guide clients on adjusting to the new legal and practical challenges presented by the 2014 healthcare environment.

Counsel to providers must start by reviewing existing managed care contracts. Some agreements may require amendments to meet the requirements of the law and new insurance products that plans are offering.

Millions will also enroll in Medicaid through the exchanges, so the exchanges are making a number of important determinations. These determinations—some correct and some incorrect—impact healthcare providers. Providers must also examine the rate and fee schedules to determine what will be covered by the exchanges.

In the new healthcare environment, healthcare providers and managed care organizations must be up to date on the related federal and state law developments to understand how the exchanges will affect them.

Listen as our authoritative panel of healthcare attorneys discusses health insurance exchanges and their impact for healthcare providers. The panel will examine key areas that providers must consider as they adapt to the new exchanges.
