We know many of you have questions about what the newly passed health care reform legislation, H.R. 3590, contains and how it will impact you. Aisling is working hard to provide you with the information and tools you need to better understand the changes and communicate what you need to know moving forward.
The amount of information about the reform bills being released right now is staggering, and Aisling feels that it is very important to make sure we analyze these measures thoroughly to help you provide the most accurate information. We ask that you keep in mind that the passage of this legislation is just the beginning point, and the implementation and regulatory processes surrounding these measures will take years.
The National Association of Health Underwriters (NAHU) has assembled two new charts to explain the timeline for implementation of the law. The first is a very detailed chart that explains how all of the new health insurance reforms in both the Senate bill and the reconciliation bill will impact private health insurance organized by effective date. The second chart is a simplified timeline that explains how both pieces of health care reform legislation will impact your programs.
In addition, NAHU CEO Janet Trautwein and senior government affairs staff will be hosting a free webinar, Health Reform: The Changes You Need to Know, on Monday, March 29, at 1:00 p.m. EDT. The webinar will outline what you need to know about the newly passed legislation and the changes being implemented over the next few years. To register, click here. Registration is limited to the first 1,000 participants, but the call will be recorded and repeated if necessary. Aisling encourages our clients to participate in the call.
