The topic for the July Meeting of the MGMA was the Affordable Care Act. The presentation was given by both Annie Berrett & Melissa Parchman with the title of “The ABC’s of ACA (Affordable Care Act)."
Annie Berrett is the Project Director of the Educare Family Health Project and the Tulsa Healthcare Coverage Project. Melissa Parchman, owner of Magoon and Associates, has been a licensed insurance broker for more than 30 years. For more information on these speakers please visit their website.
They reviewed the public care option, who is eligible, how the subsidy works and what you need to be working on as a medical provider. They shared stories of their experience and how educating the general public on their options will and can improve the health of our population.
Additionally, the Affordable Care Act has new reporting requirements for employers starting in 2016. For more information on the Affordable Care Act and a great reporting application from Sage Software, visit our ACA Hotspot.
