Risk and Compliance

Health plans

By now, most health plans have examined the actions needed to comply with the Affordable Care Act (ACA) of 2010. Plans may need new capabilities, new talent pools, and even new entities in order to turn the ACA from a series of checked boxes into a new way of doing business. Compliance with the ACA will likely require a permanent regime of strategic change. With our professionals and your team members working side by side, your organization can plan long-term moves to help navigate this change.

ACA deadlines: The need for speed

How are you managing the intense pace of ACA compliance?

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) isn’t the first major regulatory change that plans have had to adapt to. The lessons from earlier changes, including Medicare Part D and Medicare Advantage, can be a source of guidance, and confidence now.

But the ACA’s scope is unprecedented. The changes happening now are more complex and the intensity they bring may be permanent. In this environment, plans will need to stock up on vital skills, be sure their platforms are ready and perhaps even change their internal structures.

How will your business model need to adapt? Do you have enough of the experienced people it will take to apply these new rules? Are your IT platforms integrated with your vendors’—and will they both accurately support ACA compliance?
