With the proposed repeal of the Affordable Care Act (“ACA”) – and other possibly fundamental changes to Medicare, Medicaid, and federal-state relationships – there is now deep uncertainty as to what the future will bring for the healthcare industry. No one can predict when or to what extent the ACA will be repealed and what will replace it. In light of the uncertainties, everyone is wondering what the impact will be on the short and long term strategic plans of healthcare providers, insurance plans, and even state governments.

In this presentation, healthcare expert Steven Chananie, partner at Sheppard Mullin, will review what we know about the ACA (its benefits and shortcomings), the potential change scenarios, their implications on each component of the healthcare marketplace, and the potential impact on other laws, ranging from MACRA to the 21st Century Cures Act. More importantly, he will go beyond the uncertainties and provide a conceptual framework for thinking about and analyzing the changing landscape, so that stakeholders can better understand developments as they happen in the weeks and months to come, and subsequently, be better prepared to respond and modify their own strategic plans in prudent and thoughtful ways.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Understand potential changes to be made to the Affordable Care Act under the new presidential administration
  2. Examine how changes to the Affordable Care Act and other healthcare laws will impact the healthcare industry
  3. Develop a conceptual framework for how to approach and respond to a changing healthcare landscape

After surviving challenges that reached the U.S. Supreme Court, enduring years of unrelenting controversy, and persisting as a top issue in fall 2016’s presidential and congressional campaigns one wonders what’s next for the Affordable Care Act (ACA)? Indisputably, there exists a profound uncertainty about what the future holds for the healthcare industry. Chananie, an accomplished and knowledgeable Lawline speaker, explains this complex subject matter in an easy-to-understand fashion. Even with a crystal ball, no one can predict if, when, or to what extent the ACA will be repealed and, if indeed yes, what will replace it. This program articulates potential changes under the new presidential administration; contemplates the impact to the healthcare industry; appraises short- and long-term strategic plans of healthcare providers and insurance plans as well as state governments; and supplies a conceptual roadmap for how to navigate and react to a shifting healthcare landscape.
