Topic Description:

Six years after the passing of the Affordable Care Act, the health care industry faces unique financial concerns, and the upcoming election has the potential to significantly influence health care finance and delivery. Panelists will discuss the impact of the ACA on participating insurers, the complications of the financially distressed providers and patients, and the ethical implications and limitation of representing health care entities. They also will explore differences between larger urban health systems and smaller rural ones, as well as for-profit and not-for-profit institutions. With Georgia leading the country in hospital closures, this session will explore several recent examples as case studies.
