ACA Check-up: What's the Prognosis for the Exchanges?

October 26, 2016 | 09:00 AM
10:30 AM ET

ACAPrognosisNumberThere’s a growing sense of uncertainty about the future of the ACA’s insurance exchanges. While 12 million people received coverage through the exchanges this year, most of them with subsidies, the upcoming open enrollment period has brought a wave of news stories highlighting each new rate increase or insurer exiting a market. This webinar took a balanced look at what’s really happening in the exchange markets and what changes are necessary to ensure consumer choice and affordability.

Topics discussed include:

  • What to expect for the next open enrollment cycle, from prices and carrier participation to the factors influencing consumer choices
  • Evidence that the ACA has actually lowered premiums and why
  • Insurer experiences in different markets, including outreach strategies that have worked and what’s behind rate increases
  • What CMS is doing to try to strengthen the exchanges, as well as a proposal for modifying the risk adjustment program
