Benefits Market Trends and ACA Updates

7:30- 9:00 p.m., Thursday, April 10
DoubleTree Hotel
10100 College Blvd., Overland Park, Kansas    

The much-anticipated final ACA regulations were recently released. Our speakers will share their experiences on how this is impacting Plan Sponsor decisions, how the market is reacting, and innovations that are in the works. Questions that will be addressed include:
  • What is the impact of the updated regulations to small, medium, and large groups?
  • Which groups are most vulnerable?
  • What are employers doing in reaction to market conditions and the ACA?
  • Which market innovations are being considered and which are being implemented? (Exchanges, transparency, etc…)
  • How are employers balancing cost control and attracting/retaining human capital?
Our speakers are Rick Kahle and Karen Daugherty from Lockton Companies.
