Healthcare Reform 101: Finding Coverage for those you Serve

Webinar Date: 
June 9, 2010

As professionals working with Patient Assistance Programs as well as the current pubic healthcare programs in all their variations on cost sharing and coverage, we are well versed in figuring out who qualifies for what and how in 2010. With healthcare reform, we will be adding more categories and eligibility criteria to this already existing system this year and beyond. This webinar will provide a brief explanation of the new coverage groups and systems as well as changes to the currently existing ones. In addition, we will discuss the various program options available to states to alert you to changes that might occur at the local level.

During this webinar, we will:

1. Provide a general outline of the Patient Protection and Affordability Act and the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act.

2. Discuss the changes that will happen first, including creation of new high risk insurance pools and options states have to expand coverage before 2014.

3. Review current categories of eligibility for public healthcare programs and any changes or reforms to those categories through 2014 and beyond, with a particular emphasis on changes to Medicare Part D.

4. Present the new categories of eligibility under healthcare reform so that participants can understand how these new categories fit within the healthcare coverage picture.

5. Briefly review private insurance changes.

6. Outline what decisions still need to be made, particularly on the state level, so that participants can follow those discussions and participate, if applicable.

After the seminar, participants should have a better understanding of how those they serve should be covered in this new law.
