Washington Healthcare Report

October 1, 2017

Throughout 2017, Congress has focused in large part on repealing and replacing the ACA, and that now-stalled process has dominated both news cycles and investor attention.

With Congress back for the fall, however, the legislative agenda will likely focus on non-healthcare priorities for much of the time.  Key items will include keeping the government funded, raising the debt ceiling, providing disaster relief funding, and tax reform.  That said, the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) must still be authorized and we expect at least some effort toward ACA market stabilization in the early part of the fall.

White Paper: Nashville Health Care Council’s 2017 United Kingdom Study Mission Findings

June 1, 2017

Healthcare systems in any country are complex, spanning politics, business and public policy, the intersection of which creates the plethora of health systems found globally. This complexity creates a challenge for healthcare companies looking to work across borders. Yet, whilst it is true that each system is specific to its context, many parallels can be drawn across systems, and there are lessons for businesses looking to enter new markets. It is in this vein that the Nashville Health Care Council, a premier association of healthcare industry leaders, set out to run an international study mission to the UK.

Health Insurance: The Next Generation of the Individual Marketplace

April 15, 2017

Health insurers, having adopted a wait-and-see mentality, must now consider their strategies for the individual exchange markets for 2018 and beyond as they file rates and products in May and June.  While regulatory changes made by both the Obama and Trump administrations (including reinstating reinsurance for claims over $1 million, restricting special enrollment periods, and increasing allowable child premiums) for 2018 are favorable, insurers face ongoing uncertainty regarding the repeal and replace of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). In addition, there are other levers Congress and the administration may pursue to either support or undermine the ACA exchanges in the near term.
