The AHIP Medicare Conference 2013 plans to corroborate the principal role played by health insurance plans in affecting better care to seniors and shaping the future of Medicare. The ramifications of Medicare reforms, federal budgeting and changing health plans would be a salient point of discussion for major players at the conference. The challenges associated with Medicare, such as Medicare Advantage Payment Issues and Medicare Advantage Quality Initiatives, would have a platform for delineation.

The conference would also dwell into the Medicare Special Needs Plans (SNPs) for Dual Eligible Beneficiaries and Medicare Part D & related challenges.

Visit us at the hCentive stall to see how we can help you sail smoothly through the torrid waters of health exchange reforms.

Speaking Session

Medicare Advantage – Making the Complex Simple

Monday, September 23, at 7:30 a.m.

There was concern that the Affordable Care Act (ACA) would lessen Medicare Advantage enrollment. But the opposite has happened – between the beginning of 2012 and March 2013, one million more beneficiaries enrolled in the program, nearly a 10 percent year-over-year increase. With the influx of beneficiaries to the program and the inherently complex enrollment process, plans are searching for ways to strip out the complexities and make life easier.

In this session, you will learn about:

  • What you need to know to survive a Plan Marketing audit
  • What requirements you can automate – allowing you to focus on marketing and enrollment
  • Broker requirement and how to best handle
  • How to ensure compliance with CMS SLAs
