  • Key provisions of the legislation that affect the Medicare program;
  • Discussion of provisions that will likely change Medicare costs and utilization;
  • Changes to Medicare Advantage and likely outcomes to health plans;
  • Impact of changes in Medicare programs on employer-sponsored health plans; and
  • Considerations to make in current accounting-based valuations.
