AcademyHealth Three-Part Webinar Series

With the future of the ACA uncertain, this webinar series seeks to examine various policies, regulations, and potential outcomes related to ACA implementation and how they could be amended to improve market stability and costs and outcomes for low-income populations. The series is funded as part of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s “Policy-Relevant Insurance Studies” (PRIS) program, which supports studies that address the macro and micro effects of policies related to health insurance.


Part 2: Projecting the ACA’s Impact on Firm Self-Insurance and the Small Group Market
This webinar will look across states to determine how community rating requirements could impact self-insurance and the small group market.  Speakers will describe various policy solutions to this potential issue and will discuss how changes to the ACA might hurt or help employers who are self-insured or in the small group market.


Learning Objectives:

  • Understand federal and state policy implications of the community rating requirements for self-insurance and the small group market
  • Learn about potential policy changes and alternatives to these rating requirements could affect employers and new marketplaces in the future
