Yale Health Law and Policy Society Conference to Take Place on February 8th

Exploring the implementation of the new Health Insurance Exchange law, Yale Law School will hold the first ever Yale Health Law and Policy Society Conference on Feb. 8, 2014. The theme of the conference is “Health Insurance Exchange Implementation: Early Challenges and Opportunities.”

The conference will consist of health policy and law experts from across the country presenting on topics such as the history of the health insurance exchanges, early successes and challenges, and how to optimally balance state and federal roles in exchange implementation and operation. Henry J. Aaron, The Bruce and Virginia MacLaury Senior Fellow in the Economic Studies program at the Brookings Institution, will present the keynote address. Aaron is a graduate of UCLA and holds a Ph.D. in economics from Harvard University.

There will be three panels taking place at the conference, including Health Insurance Exchange 101, moderated by Yale Law Professor Nicholas R. Parrillo ’04; Implementation Status Check, moderated by Reed Abelson of the New York Times; and Cooperative Federalism in Action, moderated by Yale Law Professor Abbe Gluck ’00.

The 2014 Yale Health Law & Policy Society Conference is co-sponsored by Yale Health Law & Policy Society, ISPS Health at Yale, and the Yale Journal of Health Policy, Law, and Ethics. It will take place in the Sterling Law Building from 8:30 am to 5:15 pm.
