  • Breakfast Briefing: What the Affordable Care Act Means for You
    February 11, 2019
    7:30 am - 9:30 am

This event, originally scheduled for December 20, 2018, has been rescheduled to February 11, 2019.

Join a panel of insurance industry experts for a discussion about recent developments in the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and what they mean to businesses of all sizes.

Topics that will be discussed include actions of the Trump Administration concerning association health plans and short-term limited duration insurance and how these changes impact Maryland, recent Maryland legal and regulatory developments such as the 1332 Reinsurance Program, and prospective 2019 legislation, including an anticipated bill that would implement a state-based insurance mandate.

Bring your burning business questions concerning the ACA to this informative breakfast program.
