Course Design: The “Healthcare Reform Law Effects on the General Population” course is designed to critically examine the pros and cons of the law on population demographics such as seniors, mentally and physically disabled, small businesses, children and adults with pre-existing and catastrophic conditions, as well as its effects on Corporate America. The course will also focus on the consequences of the law on the various spending accounts such as FLEX, MSA, HSA, and HRA. Lastly, the course will examine the future role of IRS in the healthcare reform law’s execution and shed light on the law’s overall effects on the insured population(s).
Course Objective: The topical course will enable student participants the opportunity to critically discuss, analyze, and engage in Q & A sessions on the healthcare reform law’s effects now and in the future on the various US demographics.
