Commenting on today's announcement, Mr. Rich said, "Now is a very interesting time for health plans, looking to evaluate the marketplace for better business opportunities. While the impending reforms promise some significant business opportunities for insurers, it is important to consider how the Supreme Court judgment will impact these Exchanges."
Mr. Singh added, "Insurers are keen to understand the potential impact that the Supreme Court decision will have on the emergence of Private Exchanges. Having interacted with a wide variety of insurers and policymakers, hCentive brings critical insight into the situation and how insurers can make the most of the ever-changing landscape."Chris Condeluci, an expert on the legal aspects of PPACA, ERISA, and State insurance law and how these laws may impact Private Exchanges, will also participate in the panel discussion. Mr. Condeluci said, "Private Exchanges are the future. I believe that regardless of whether PPACA is upheld, modified, or halted by a Supreme Court decision, Private Exchanges will play a critical role in any new health care marketplace. With NFP Health's long-standing experience with Private Exchanges and hCentive's deep expertise, Jeff and Sanjay are uniquely positioned to shed some light on the direction that Private Exchanges will take moving forward."
