Schaumburg, IL (January 6, 2012) - In response to the inception of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), Assurance University is hosting an online webinar to educate business professionals on reforms specific to the health care law that will continue to roll out through 2014 and beyond. As health care reform remains one of the dominate items on this year’s national political agenda, both the specific regulations being considered and upcoming elections could impact this legislation.

Attendees will learn what PPACA changes are being considered and how the U.S. Supreme Court’s case and upcoming presidential elections could impact their implementation. Joel and Scott will also speak on how the pending revisions could impact your long-term decisions on health care, as well as review an update on the Summary of Benefit and Coverage provision compliance delay.
