To help inform members on upcoming changes of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), North Coast Association of Health Underwriters (NCAHU) is pleased to present “Live from NAHU” webinar program:

It's Been 9 Months – What Has the Stork (Congress) Delivered?

Join NAHU CEO Janet Trautwein for this session of Live from NAHU!, which will provide a legislative update on what has transpired in Congress and what we can see happening for the remainder of the year.

During this course, participants will learn about recent legislative and regulatory actions to make significant changes to the Affordable Care Act by Congress and the Trump Administration. The course will examine what actions have been taken so far, what the political and philosophical barriers have been, what actions we can expect in the near-term and later, what prompted the need for changes to be made, how the changes are being made and the role that NAHU is having in this process, and what NAHU members, the overall agent/broker community, and employers play in this process.

Learning Objectives: Upon completion of the course, the participant will know:

  • The actions that have been taken by the Trump Administration and Congress to make significant changes to the Affordable Care Act;
  • The specific policy proposals that have been and are under consideration or are being developed to change the health reform law;
  • The rationale for changing the healthcare system, both from a market stabilization standpoint as well as a longer-term comprehensive reforms for both the individual and employer markets;
  • The political background and processes that are leading to particular actions to being made and how NAHU works to influence these processes.
  • Policy positions of the association in affecting change in health reform at both the legislative and regulatory levels and what to expect in the coming year;
  • Tools and resources for becoming active and engaged in these processes.
