Waiting For The Affordable Care Act Marketplace To Open

Late last month I returned to the scene of an earlier crime (October 2012) and once again met with employer-members of the Eau Claire Area Chamber of Commerce to talk about the Affordable Care Act and the October 1 opening of the Marketplace (formerly known as the Exchange). I think it is safe to say that both me and my audience had grown a little older and a little wiser since my last presentation. The issuance of a few hundred pages of regulations definitely has an effect on a health care reform advisor.

This presentation pre-dated the announcement of the delay of the employer pay or play mandate, so as with everything lately related to health care reform, the shelf life of this presentation is a little bit shorter than the new Twinkies. The grand opening of the Marketplace however hasn't been delayed, so still some takeaways to be had.
