Health Care Reform & Compliance

HEALTH CARE REFORM

Insights from Washington DC. Stay up-to-date as President Trump, the 115th Congress and the new Department of HHS leadership are making it clear that change is coming.

In 2018, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is expected to be modified through new regulatory guidance following the 2017 directives and executive orders from President Trump. Further, as rate instability continues within the health insurance exchanges, the increasing cost of health care and resulting rising premiums remain ongoing challenges for employers. While legislative details, timelines and the speed of change remain uncertain, Oswald continues to be vigilant in providing proactive and actionable analysis. We bring industry insights from Washington DC and provide hands-on resources for strategic direction as the new phase of health care reform unfolds. 

As Ohio’s largest benefits provider, Oswald has been a trusted advisor in providing clear, timely guidance since the ACA became law in 2010. Oswald provides expertise in assessing new benefit program options, creative designs and cost-saving funding alternatives as the health insurance marketplace evolves.
