Program Overview

Public and private health insurance lies at the center of health care policy and law, and can be seen as a primary catalyst of change, as well as an industry in its own right, which has been shaped by the evolution of forces in health care delivery and medical technology. Eight Annual Symposium on Access to Health Care will explore legal and policy issues in the health insurance arena examining past, current and future trends.

Five major themes will be explored. The first major theme will center on the changing posture of regulators in overseeing health insurance offerings, focusing on current developments in state departments of insurance and the expanding role of federal authorities in oversight of the field in the wake of the ACA. The second theme will explore how initiatives in cost control and benefit design are impacting provider and beneficiary obligations. The third theme will concentrate on the increased role of private insurers in public programs exploring, in particular, the expanded role of insurers in managed care. The fourth theme will focus on the emerging structural components of coverage from the ACO to co-ops and how such structures are being shaped and regulated. The fifth theme centers on health care marketplaces, current status and future evolution.
