With the vast majority of 2014 individual enrollments in the public insurance exchanges now in, there are starting to be data for assessing who signed up, what that means for the risk pool, and what the implications are for insurer and broker participation in 2015. Decisions on participation and rates for next year need to be made now, but should be based on an understanding of what is happening in 2014. What financial problems have surfaced, and how effective are and will be the federal risk-mitigation programs in offsetting them? What trends are likely in product and price changes in 2015? Hear from two industry experts who will provide a detailed analysis of what to expect — this year and next — in both the individual and small-business exchanges.
