What to Expect From the New HHS and CMS: A Conversation with Tommy Thompson, Former HHS Secretary and Wisconsin Governor

Tuesday, April 4, 2017

Join us for this free webinar to learn how to prepare for the future health insurance market post-AHCA.

With Tom Price, M.D., now heading HHS, and Seema Verma taking the reins at CMS, health insurance carriers, brokers and agents, health systems and employers are anxious to find out what to expect. Just when we thought we were going to gain clarity around changes in the health insurance market, the American Health Care Act was pulled from the House. So what happens to healthcare reform now?

Join GetInsured on April 4 for a complimentary webinar that will offer a behind-the-scenes look into the Trump administration's key health agencies. You'll hear directly from former HHS Secretary and Wisconsin Governor Tommy Thompson, GetInsured CEO Chini Krishnan and David Smith, Chief Development Officer at Leavitt Partners consulting.

In 60 minutes you’ll get insider perspectives on key topics such as:

  • What the demise of AHCA means for health insurers, employers, and consumers.
  • What steps Congress and the administration will likely take next.
  • What regulatory actions Secretary Price can take to help with market stabilization.
  • What state-based marketplaces can do right now to assure stability.
