Call for papers: The Implementation of the Affordable Care Act (abstracts due Oct. 25)

On Friday, April 4, 2014, John Marshall’s Center for Tax Law & Employee Benefits will host the 12th Annual Employee Benefits Symposium: "The Implementation of the Affordable Care Act." Papers will be published in The John Marshall Law Review’s special Symposium edition, Spring 2014 (subject to its discretion).

The Symposium offers leading academics, practitioners, economists, and consultants the opportunity to directly address successes, shortfalls, and surprises in the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act to date; as well as to predict future challenges and unintended consequences; and to propose further revisions/reforms.

Authors and presenters are invited to submit proposals on topics
such as the following:

  • How employee plans are being redesigned in reaction to the ACA
  • How health care costs have changed due to the ACA
  • How the ACA has impacted retirees, the previously uninsured, low-income groups, and the young and healthy.
  • How external review by independent review organizations impacts the outcome of benefit claims and the judicial standard of review
  • How consumer behavior affects the use of health care exchanges
