Learning Objectives

Participants of this session will become well-versed in:

1.  The new entities created by The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA).  Panelists will address how state sponsored Exchanges could impact use of captives for financing employee benefits.

2.  Changes in the risk financing decision processes employers will need to use in reaction to the requirements of PPACA. 

3.  Health insurance reform factors other than PPACA that have the potential to impact owners and users of captives via changes in medical professional liability insurance costs.

Seminar Outline:

1.  Overview of the new entities created by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA)

2.  Comparison of Medical Exchanges versus Captives for Financing group Medical Benefits risks

3.  Potential impact of PPACA on plan design

4.  Changes in risk financing roles and processes as a result of PPACA

5.  Prospects for Tort Reform as a result of health insurance reform

6.  How changes in the structure of health care provider organizations provide opportunities and challenges for captives

Program Content: 

What could be the impact of health care reform on captives?  What are the opportunities?  On June 16th three panelists will explore this important topic, discussing the question in two ways. First, David Liner, an actuary with Milliman, and Kathleen Waslov, a consultant with Willis, will describe how The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) may impact employers who seek to use captive insurance to reduce the cost of providing group medical plans to their employees. Second, Kate Westover, as consultant with Innovative Captive Strategies and the Executive Director of the Community Blood Centers Exchange RRG, will focus on whether the impetus for health care reform will lead to cost saving for health care users, either by reducing the expense component of medical costs, or by changing the way in which health care organizations operate in the future.
