Medicare Prescription Drugs Seminar
3/30 - Medicare Prescription Drugs Seminar - Thursday Session
Credits: CPD 4.20
Most employers decided to collect the retiree drug subsidy for 2006. However, the Medicare Modernization Act provides many other alternatives to coordinate with the new prescription drug plan for Medicare retirees. Deciding whether or not to continue accepting the federal subsidy or utilize another strategy will be an important decision for employers to make in the next two years. This seminar is focused on the design and actuarial aspects of the MMA impact on employer plans. This session is designed for individuals with moderate to advanced subject knowledge. Basic understanding of the alternatives is desirable.
The faculty for this seminar is from the various American Academy of Actuaries’ work groups who are focusing on these issues, staff from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services are also invited to share their perspectives.
