Sorting Out the Federal Health Insurance Marketplace - Forum Provides Answers (and More Questions!)

On Thursday evening June 13, I had the pleasure of participating in a public forum sponsored by the Wisconsin Institute for Public Policy and Service entitled, "Preparing for the Federal Health Insurance Marketplace: A View from Wisconsin." As one of three panelists, I was asked to talk about how employers large and small are preparing for the Marketplace (also known as the Exchanges). I found the composition of the audience to be varied, young and old, business owners, employees, and retirees. It seems that everyone has a lot of questions about the Marketplace, and those of us on the panel did what we could to answer those questions. As attorneys oftentimes we feel as though "we'll have to wait and see" isn't necessarily a helpful response to a client's question, but in the case of the Marketplace there really are still a lot of unknowns.
