The Supreme Court associates may already know whether the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (PPACA) is alive, dead or both.
Meanwhile, while the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is waiting for the outcome of the PPACA constitutionality cases, the regulatory show must go on.
An HHS arm, the Center for Consumer Information & Insurance Oversight (CCIIO), is organizing a big, two-day meeting for parties with an interest in the PPACA risk adjustment program.
The meeting, which is set to start May 7 in a hotel in Arlington, Va., is open to the public, but space is limited, CCIIO officials warn in a PPACA risk adjustment meeting notice that appears today in the Federal Register.
“Registration will be on a first-come, first-serve basis, limited to three attendees per organization,” officials say.
At the meeting, the CCIIO will bring together state officials, insurance company executives, and other interested parties to talk about the nuts and bolts of a “federal risk adjustment methodology” now under development.
Participants will talk about the risk adjustment model, calculation of plan average actuarial risk, calculation of payments and charges, data collection approach, and the schedule for running risk adjustment. Stakeholders will get a chance to communicate with HHS about the risk adjustment program, officials say.
HHS and the CCIIO are holding the meeting in connection with efforts to implement PPACA Section 1343.
