With the Affordable Care Act (ACA) still the law of the land, at least for the short-term, this webinar will provide an overview of important developments in other federal and state benefit legislation impacting employee benefit plans (and in turn, employers). We will then switch gears and focus on carrier innovations that are occurring in the marketplace designed to achieve high quality delivery of service, and at the same time, contain medical costs. Specifically, we will discuss the rise of accountable care organizations, or ACOs, their innovative aspects, how they operate, and the value they present to employers and individuals.
The webinar will be presented by Vice President and Director of Compliance, Richard Asensio, JD., and Nathan Ackeret, Vice President and Managing Director of Burnham Benefits' Los Angeles office. Richard is a well-respected expert in the industry and has a wealth of experience assisting clients in managing employee benefits programs with an emphasis on compliance.
