Testimonials from National Healthcare Reform Conference® Speakers
“Bringing together a dynamic and diverse group of health care leaders, government officials and industry experts, this conference will engender thoughtful and timely discussion about how the landscape of health care is changing. I am pleased to be a part of this important opportunity to address the challenges and implications of the health care law for all Americans.”
-Therese (Terri) Vaughan, National Association Insurance Commissioners
The Patient Protection & Affordable Care Act will change the way many employees receive their coverage and affect the type of health plans workers are allowed to have. Many firms not currently offering coverage will face fines beginning in 2014, while some firms may find their plans do not meet new requirements. Conference attendees will learn about their obligations under the new law and how to navigate employers’ and employees’ options.
-Devon Herrick,National Center for Policy Analysis
"Healthcare reform is still a work in progress. The National Healthcare Reform Conference® will take place at a time when many of the regulations will have been specified, and thus, it will provide the most up to date information available, as well as provide solutions and information that people can use to optimize understanding and garner the most benefit from the legislation."
-Greg T. Greenwood, Human Capital Specialists
"The first National Healthcare Reform Conference® comes at an opportune time.. In the months since passage of the legislation, there has been a lot of education about what the law entails and the enormity of its impact has sunk in. With that understanding as a backdrop, the National Healthcare Reform Conference® will be a chance to discuss long-term outlooks for healthcare and come away with strategies to fulfill the promise of reform."
-David Ries, Human Capital Specialists
Senior Fellow in Domestic and Economic Policy Studies at The Heritage Foundation, Robert E. Moffit, Ph.D., is delighted to be participating in the National Healthcare Reform Conference® in Los Angeles in September. “During a time of skyrocketing deficits and increasing encroachment on individual freedom from the federal government, it is extremely important to continue the national healthcare debate. Some of the negative consequences of the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) will affect not only doctors, seniors, and business owners, but every single American citizen. It will alter the relationship between the individual citizen and the federal government, and it will alter the relationship between the federal government and the states.” From Moffit’s perspective, the debate on health care reform should continue; the current law should be scrapped in favor of a new approach that restores the traditional doctor-patient relationship, empowers individuals and families to make the key decisions over health care financing, health plans and benefits, and promotes bold health care reform experimentation at the state level. The National Healthcare Reform Conference® will be an exceptional forum to discuss healthcare reform that allows for real individual choice and better quality of care.
-Robert Moffit, The Heritage Foundation
We wouldn't miss this opportunity to take part in the upcoming National Health Care Reform Conference. The NHCR Conference will prove to be an invaluable resource for all in attendance because we know that real Healthcare Reform is not achieved with government control, rules and regulations but rather a nation coming together with resolve to achieve, physical, fiscal and social health responsibility"
- Eric Johnson, First Horizon Msaver
“I want to reach out to and tell you how excited I am to participate in theNational Healthcare Reform Conference®, September 20-22nd, 2010 in Los Angeles. This symposium will focus on the unprecedented changes that health care reform will produce over the next five years. With universal coverage, accelerating adoption of electronic medical records, actual and virtual accountable care organizations caring for whole populations, and the increasing importance of meaningful data analytics health care delivery will look very different soon. I encourage you to join us and attend this conference to get a jump on the competition.”
-Raymond Fabius, Thomson Reuters
Since health care reform remains at the top of the national agenda, I am looking forward to speaking at the National Healthcare Reform conference®, September 20-22, 2010, in Los Angeles. As Hewitt's west region health management leader, I've helped employers address the impact of health care reform on their overall benefits strategy. I look forward to sharing my insights with you about the key trends in employer provided benefits and what works best in communicating changes to your employees.
-Lee D. Reichenbach, Hewitt Associates
As a former Director at the Massachusetts Health Connector, I am an expert on healthcare reform and its impacts. Having participated in countless public discussions on reform, I am constantly reminded how important it is for there to be a continuous dialogue on the topic.. I currently direct the State Health Services practice at Dell Services, and look forward to sharing with you some insights, lessons learned and practical solutions for managing the vast change taking place around health care.
I look forward to meeting you at the conference, networking and sharing my knowledge and experience with you.
-Melissa Boudreault, Dell
On March 23, 2010, President Obama signed into law the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (P.L. 111-148) which represented a landmark in the history of health care in the United States. Not since the introduction of Medicare in 1965 has such sweeping legislation been passed. This new law, which will extend health insurance coverage to 32 million more Americans by 2019, contains key provisions that will affect physicians and their medical practices. In light of the new direction of America’s health care system, it is critical that you understand how health care reform will affect you and how you can be ready for the forthcoming regulations. The National Health Reform Conference will provide you with an unparalleled venue for seeking out answers and solutions to what health care reform really means.
