ACA EMPLOYER IMPLICATIONS RESOURCES
NBCH has compiled two lists of the Affordable Care Act's implications for employers.
2012 ELECTIONS - IMPLICATIONS FOR HEALTH CARE REFORM
The 2012 elections were closely watched because of their potential impact on health reform and Affordable Care Act implementation. With the balance of power remaining unchanged at the federal level, work that had been placed on hold will continue as we work to prepare for 2014, which is a critical year for many major ACA programs. NBCH has prepared talking points describing the impacts on budget sequestration and ACA implementation moving forward.
ALLIANCE FOR HEALTH REFORM BRIEFING WEBCAST AVAILABLE
On June 12, the Alliance for Health Reform held a briefing titled "Health Care Costs - What Can Be Done?" Though there is still disagreement about the extent to which various cost drivers contribute to the troubling trajectory of health care spending in the United States, there are success stories. This briefing took a look at some of the innovative strategies in both the public and private sectors that have bent the cost curve downwards and some that may hold promise for lowering the rate of growth of national health care spending. The briefing also featured Dr. Paul Ginsburg presenting a paper that was commissioned especially for this series. The paper examines a range of policy strategies that might promote changes in health financing and delivery that would encourage higher quality and more efficient care delivery.
An archived webcast, a podcast, and supporting materials for the briefing can be found by visiting the link above.
